Hey, If you go 400 <--> 400 I would use ZIP and the built in VPN support of OS/400.... If you go 400 <--> PC Then either ZIP and SSL, or ZIP and VPN, depending on just what level of security the site and data needs, There are a number of good PC Products out there to work with the 400's VPN, but I like the IRE SafeNet/Soft-PK product best at the moment. It seems to be the least impacted by DSL, NAT type issues. Latter, ---- Jeffrey M. Silberberg CompuDesigns, Inc.
