I have access to our AS/400s via Mocha (www.mochasoft.dk). Even over the
Internet, without putting the AS400s on the Internet. By using a socket
redirection program I wrote, I'm able to forward the Telnet connections
to an internal IP address. The standard Telnet port 23 is not being used
over the Internet, which provides for additional security. This solution
includes the use of a NT Server on the Internet or with RAS enabled and
a copy of our Socket Sidewinder program.

If you get a copy of Mocha TN5250 and want a demo, I can help. EMail me
at ken@cm-inc.com and I can get you a AS/400 signon screen over the
Internet when you're ready.
