Steve,

As I understand it, IP over Twinax requires a special twinax card in 
your PC...or at least a very new one from IBM.

With ethernet cards costing about $30 each (lower if you shop), it 
would probably be cheaper to just go ethernet.

Then you can use the free peer-to-peer networking that is part of 
Win95/98/NT and are well positioned for other stuff down the road.

And as a bonus, you do not have to deal with twinax any more! 
 Ethernet is much easier to deal with.

JMHO,
Bob Crothers

Subject:        TCP/IP over twin-ax

Are there any practical limitations in the TCP/IP over twin-ax
implementation in the AS/400?

Are there limitations on the number of TCP/IP connections that can be 
made
through the twin-ax port on an AS/400 vs the number that can be 
connected
over ethernet or token-ring?

TIA,
