Thanks, for all the feedback. I am kinda doing this on my own because our network guys are short on resources to look into things that are really low priority items. Anyway, it looks as though I have things to investigate.  Again, Thanks!

just because you can ping out does not mean that your as/400 is outside
the firewall. you most likely have an internal addressing scheme and
the router does all the communication to/from the outside.
