There was discussion of this recently.  The thread starts in the archive at 
http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l/200101/msg00207.html

On the AS/400, besides the normal SNA configuration, you need an AnyNet
controller, host tables entries for both the local and remote systems, and
configuration list entries for both the local and remote systems.

We use AnyNet for all of our AS/400 to AS/400 SNA.  Don't try to use AnyNet
in conjuction with Virtual APPN.  One of the remote AS/400s was running
Virtual APPN with straight SNA and that was fine, but when we set up AnyNet
between our system and that one, the AnyNet would die after a couple of
days.  I got them to turn off Virtual APPN (they didn't know why it was on
in the first place) and that took care of the problem.  This was with V4R4
at both ends.
