A situation came up where we need to stick an AS/400 "workstation" & printer
in Hawaii and "attach" it to an AS/400 in Reno, Nevada.  They're talking about
getting a leased line to do this at a startup cost of $1000 and monthly fees
of $900.

Traffic volume is not expected to be significant; this workstation would be
used primarily to request a shipping label to be printed on the label printer.
 The display will be a PC, not a dumb terminal.

What are some other options that could be considered at less cost?  Dial-up is
absolutely out of the question.

I thought I had heard VPN (virtual private network) being used as a
lower-cost, reliable alternative to leased line, but my memory is fuzzy on

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
