My answer is not what you asking for, but something you might want to 
consider.
Many people who use a PC while they are at the office & another PC while they 
are at home, can use PC Anywhere or Carbon Copy or other PC software to get 
from home PC to work PC then from there sign onto the AS/400.

The AS/400 does not know that the user is really at home, or from mobile PC.  
All it knows is that someone is signing on via the PC in the local office.  
There is nothing needed on the AS/400 to support this, any different than we 
have for PC connections.

There needs to be software on both the office PC and home or mobile PC for 
this to work & the end user of office PC can set security to prevent 
unauthorized people from using their PC, but we have had instances of people 
erasing all passwords from an office PC.
