Art,

        You are on the right path.  First, make sure that you have the
AS/400 supporting IP Forwarding.

        Second, make sure you REALLY REALLY REALLY  want to do this !!  Do
you have EXIT programs, and Object security in place on your AS/400, your NT
servers, your presidents PC which has an open share so the secretary can
back it up, etc !!!

        Now if you want to continue then yes, Network Address Translation is
what you want.  Static NAT is a permanent map between two addresses, and is
mostly used to link a Private IP address (RFC-1918) to a public Internet
address, and this is not what you want unless you are connecting to a
service that MUST know what IP you are originating from.

        Traffic is controlled by the PORTS/SERVICES that are open, in V4R4
we gained much more control in Filter rules, and restrictions for IP
connectivity, but you may want to look seriously at the/a FireWall if you
have serious concerns here as the native support is designed to protect the
box, and I am not sure how far or well it extends to pass through
functionality..

        An yes use the OPS NAV to set this up..

        JMS...
