     Client Access/400 uses IP ports in much the same way as Mocha TN5250.
It just uses more ports. Check out the WRKTCPSTS command, (Option 3. Work
with TCP/IP connection status) and you'll see the CA/400 host servers
listening on ports such as as-srvmap on port 449 (press F14). Each of the
TCP services named as-xxxxxxxx are assigned to listen on a specific port.
Most are normally in the 847x range.

     I suppose if Socket Sidewinder was configured to redirect the CA/400
ports then it may even have a chance of working. Or at least some
feature(s). I do know that the CA/400 user authentication is required and
license management is involved. These features complicate the CA/400
connection and that is why we at CMI paid Mochasoft for the corporate
license, which is rather reasonable in comparison.

     I also would like to add that Mocha TN5250 easily installs from a
diskette, Zipped or Unzipped. If fact, Zipped and Unzipped together on a
single diskette.

     As you can see from my signature, I am a CA/400 certified specialist.
I use client access every day and use the CA/400 objects in many of my
solutions. I just don't think it fits in every one.

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.
