What you would need to get PPP working on your AS/400 is to (1) move to V4R2
(2) purchase the communications hardware that will support the (new in V4R2)
PPP line description (3) have the hardware required to use OS/400 Operations
Navigator.  That is you'd need to have one or more of any of the following I/O
Adapters:

   2699 -- Two-line WAN IOA
   2720 -- PCI WAN/Twinaxial IOA
   2721 -- PCI Two-line WAN IOA

I expect you'd also have to purchase a new IOP to support the IOA, but frankly
that's just a guess. I don't work directly with AS/400 hardware and so I'm
clueless about what IOP works with what IOA on what model.. If you would tell
us what model of AS/400 you have I'm sure someone could dig up this information.
Or you could probably dig it out yourself from the online copy of "AS/400
System Concepts and Architecture" at the following URL:
http://AS400BKS.rochester.ibm.com:80/cgi-bin/bookmgr/bookmgr.cmd/BOOKS/EZ30FL03

(Your AS/400 is only a year and half old and came with V3R7? Did we REALLY get
two releases of OS/400 (V4R1 and V4R2) out in under a year and a half???? Gosh,
but things HAVE changed :-)
