Hmm... I verified the default route and it was correct, and it still wouldn't work. I was assigning my AS/400 a high IP address, x.x.x.139 and it wouldn't work We just got a new internet line and I had tried the same thing on my old line, with a high internet address, and it didn't work. So, I just removed the x.x.x.139 address, and added x.x.x.115, added the default route and... it worked?!? I am told that my ip range is x.x.x.112 Block Size: /28 So, I have 112-140. My net mask is 255.255.255.240 This is what confuses me, and maybe it has something to do with it? 240 in binary is 11110000 255 in binary is 11111111 wouldn't a mask of 255.255.255.240 mask off all bits but the last 4? so wouldn't my range be from 0 to 15 with 0 and 15 being unusable? Or is there something I don't understand about net masks? (I wouldn't doubt that). Anyway, thanks for the help, but there is something funny going on, I think, with the AS/400 (or V3R7M0 in particular), IP address, netmasks and the internet.
