Following along this idea that Nina has put forward: Somewhere along the 
line someone at your company is in charge of the AS/400 and it's 
attachment to the web.  Ask that person if they'd be willing to assign 
some sort of name to the machine and ask the ISP that deals with your 
company's IP addressing to publish that name in their DNS.   Then, there's 
no need  for you to fuss about IP addresses and ports.  They know a lot 
more about what they want then we do, so it should be their bailiwick, 
anyway, in my humble opinion.

hi gary,

i haven't done it using dns, but you should be able to map it thru your
firewall to a real ip address.  then outside the firewall you'd use the
real address, and inside you'd use the 192.168.1.1 address.

for ports open, you need 23, 449, and about 5-6 in the 8000's (i don't
have them handy just this minute).
