In MS Proxy, you should be able to map an inbound port (I would use a port
number other than 23) on your IP address to port 23 of the internal address
of your AS400 on your LAN.  This would forward telnet requests to the AS400.
It is not the most secure method, but at least a non standard port may keep
a casual hacker away from Telneting to the AS400.

You can use a firewall installed on an Nt machine and open a port that will
route telnet connections to your as/400 .... i dont think its a very secure
way of doing it but im sure with the proper hardware it should be fine.
