There are many ways to connect to AS/400.  You do not need a password.

Most software installed on AS/400s world wide was written in an era in which 
you did need a password, so that software is ill equipped to protect against 
new ways of connecting.

I have been meaning to send you some stuff off-line & got distracted.
I have not forgotten you.
The first document I am sending you is a study of System Values that have an 
impact on Security, including some that are not in the official IBM list of 
security impacts.  These notes developed over time from education here, then 
I looked up what our settings are, explained to my satisfaction what the 
significance is, decided what settings we should consider switching to & why 
& here are my notes leading to those conclusions ... some of these values you 
might want to check out where you work & see if you agree or disagree with my 
conclusions for your site.
