Our AS400 connects to the Internet via a PC running NT and Win Proxy (a
proxy server, however WIN95/98 could also be used), we FTP to the proxy
server and then the proxy server asks for
the FTP address of the server we wish to connect to on the Internet.  Of
course we can map a port on the proxy server to point to a specific address
and then FTP to the proxy with the mapped port and bypass the need to enter
the external IP address of the FTP server we wish to connect to.

Unfortunately, the FTP is only one way.  We can not FTP from the Internet to
the AS400 through the proxy server.  This is true even with any FTP server
on the secure side of our network, not just the AS400.  I have addressed
this issue with the mfg of Winproxy.  They hope to address it in a future
release.  Can anyone recommend another Proxy Server that will allow FTP both
ways?

|The key would be to make your PC a proxy server with a program like
WINGATE.

|You would have to make some extra steps for things like FTP and TELNET
though.
