Nina 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.

Anyway, Judging from your answer it > may be that I need to research this area before I ask > more questions. 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. nj +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +--- +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
