Mark, What I would do is get a Perle box and use that. Their model 3i would probably work well for you. You just hook it up to a twinax line and then hook up modems to the serial ports on the box. To the 400 this just looks like a bunch of tubes on a twinax line. A company I used to work for used this box for customers and sales reps to dial in. It worked pretty well and pretty reliably, I think it needed to be reset 3 or 4 times in the 2 1/2 years I worked there. On the PC you could uses Perle's PerleTalk software, or use a comm program such as ProComm. The only problem with the comm program is the F-keys don't map very well, so I would suggest purchasing and using PerleTalk. I think you can also do this with their latest 594e, but you need to use a comm line from the 400 and get a null-modem to go between the boxes; this can be a bit more expensive because of the comm feature on the 400. It gets configured on the 400 as a 5394/5494 and devices. BTW, I have no association with Perle, just used their stuff in the past. You can find them on the net at http://www.perle.com .

Manske" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Green Screen access for customers - suggestions?? Hello; I am a Sr. Project Lead at a distribution company. We have customers that would like to dial into our AS/400 have restricted access through the AS/400 security and be able to change their SRP's. Here is the issue; we do not want to use Hyperterm; too clumsy and not very nice to look at. Our preference would be Client Access - I am unclear of the IBM licensing issues with regards to this option; not to mention the thing that concerns us the most is the security issues with regards to being able to do file uploads and downloads. With this in mind, is there a way to set CA up so that you do not have access to upload/download; short of burning your own copy and leaving out the *.EXE's that perform those functions; or having to go to each customer site to install CA and "remove features" after the fact. This all in all would still not stop a savvy "geek" to get a full copy of CA and still have access to upload/download by re-installing it. Bottom line, is there anything our there that functions like the old dumb terminals we all grew up with (ok I'm dating myself, I have worked on a S/3 , S/34, S/36, S/38 (mod 8) talk about needing a whole floor for a system) It does not matter if they call our server or the AS/400; I am just looking for thoughts and ideas to how this could be accomplished economically for our customers and simplistic for the company so the knowledge can be passed on painlessly. Thank you in advance for any help.. Mark A.
