I know if you configure the PC between the ISP and the 400 as a proxy server
it works.... we do it all the time.

|just dialing to the as/400 is easy but at least you0ve two problems:
|- only one people can use it (one for each line/modem)
|- you can pay long distance call if not in the same city
|
|i think the best will be stabilish an internet connection with an ISP
|doing a local call from an networked pc, now remote pc's connect to
|internet using other ISP, and (knowing the IP addrees of the
|networked+conected pc or AS/400) can use the LAN resources.
|
|could this be possible?
|maybe neccesary an fixed IP for the networked PC (and the Networked
|AS/400)
|
|AS400---PC----ISP-----INTERNET------RemotePC
|
|at least here in Spain phone calls are very expensive if not in the same
|city (local) or using local call to ISP.
|
|very interesting thread.
