If you take the AS/400 out of the equation and think about LAN to LAN
connection (main to remote) then any vendor can help you with a solution.
We have a remote site across town where our mirrored AS/400 is but the 2
AS/400's aren't hard connected, the LAN's that they reside on are connected.
Main site has LAN with router to T-1 to remote to router to LAN with remote
AS/400 on LAN.  We even supply email and Internet (not AS/400) to users at
the remote LAN.  Remember, a LAN is a topology it does not require a server
only a hub.
With TCP/IP you can have it all.

                We have a 2nd building 7 blocks down the street.  For eons
now we have
                connected this 2nd building to our main building (here) via
a leased
                line.  At the other end is a Win 3.1 PC and PC printer.  We
run Client
                Access remotely.  The modems are IBM 3865s at 9600.  (I
would have put
                in faster modems long ago except the SDLC card is limited to
9600, so
                why bother . . .)
