     To use the phone company's lines, you can use a TN5250e emulator and 
     use a LAN to LAN router connection using 33.6 dial-up, ISDN, Frame 
     Relay, 56k leased line, or DSL (if available).  Telnet traffic is low 
     bandwidth, and TN5250E will give you both Display and Printer 
     sessions.  It does require the telnet server in OS/400 to be 
     You can use a remote access box and have each PC RAS in then do 
     TN5250E to the AS/400.
     You can setup an account with an ISP and Telnet accross the internet 
     to your AS/400, but that requires a persistent Internet connection on 
     the AS/400 side.
     To use a 5394 and Twin-ax cards, you can get a leased line from the 
     phone company and run SDLC.
     You can use a dial-up protocol convertor like a Renex TMS-5 (plug) and 
     have the users dial in directly.
     Good Luck!
