Of course the idea of using some TN5250 client over the Internet springs 
to mind. Have any of the people here that have AS/400s on the net had 
intruder troubles yet? 

Please understand, I am not suggesting that trouble can not happen, but 
for a lot less than $900/month you can put a small AS/400 in Nevada and 
connect that way.  I'd bet that after a bit if the little AS/400 in Nevada 
was easy to reach off the internet that you'd find it being used a lot 
more than just by the PC in Hawaii.

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.
