I know there are many AS/400 machines outside a firewall. Have any of those had troubles yet that would have been prevented if a firewall had been there? So far the only useful business benefit I have seen from the firewalls has been to keep employees from reaching the internet with telnet and Instant Messenger types of activity but on the other hand I have seen performance degrade and connectivity issues arise from these firewall schemes. It is raising the question in my mind of the value of the inbound firewall. _______________________ Booth Martin Booth@MartinVT.com http://www.MartinVT.com _______________________ nina jones <email@example.com> Sent by: firstname.lastname@example.org 01/27/2001 04:10 PM Please respond to MIDRANGE-L To: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com cc: Subject: Re: AS400 connectivity VIA the WEB.... > Thanks, I have client access already and I am > connected to an AS400 via the net.
