From what I understand - Yes....  start here: http://as400service.ibm.com/p_dir/ptfOrdhelp.nsf/4cb99c3c728181b48625665f00482e0b?OpenView

The way I understand it is, you:

1. set up a properly 'SOCKSified' client PC (if you have a firewall).  OS/2 not supported.
2. set up TCP/IP connection to the 400
3. (v4r2) PTF SF48162;  (v4r3) PTF SF50552
4.  sign up for the iPTF system
5. Download whatever you need thru the internet
6. The download is automagically sent to the 400.

I've never needed to this myself, but they lead me to believe that it can be done.

I 've searched the archives and everything I've found says this can't be
done but I thought I would ask anyway.

I'm the new security officer of a recently added AS400. Ie previously
existing network.  This means I have all the access I could possibly want
inside the box, but the powers that be will not give me physical access to
the box!  We run a TCP/IP network and I want to know if there is anyway to
load PTF's etc from my PC's CD-ROM to the AS/400.

The only other option available to me is to get them to move the 400 out of
god's room and into my office!

Kind Regards
