Client Access Express can use VPN or Encrypted connection over the internet.
If they are willing to open up the SSL Host Servers to the internet and
punch a hole thru their firewall.  This is provided that both locations
already have an internet connection to utilize.  Very secure at 128bit
encryption.  Not so easy to setup.  Seek profession network help that knows
about the AS400.

Subject: Leased Line vs. ???


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.
