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.

Karen Herbelin - Readers Digest 3/2000 -----Original Message----- From: D.BALE@handleman.com [mailto:D.BALE@handleman.com] Sent: Thursday, November 09, 2000 12:01 PM To: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com 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.
