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 this. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
