I tend to agree that this sort of thing gets really left out of
the "normal" manuals, but a lot of the newer manuals are badly
written by folks who don't have a clue about the subject matter.

This is in my opinion is one of the major failing points in the
400,iseries,whatever series.....

The simple "See Dick & Jane" instructions works the very best,
and for the life of me, I don't understand why more folks 
don't bitch bitterly about this. TCP/IP continues to be a 
major topic of conversation in some many threads both here
and at other sites.  http://www.easy400.ibm.it/tcpcfgs is the way
to handle these more complex issues, and there should be another
site dedicated to "How to hook up my XXXXXXXX ascii printer using
a TCP/IP connection.
(This is handled at a IBM web site that nobody can find)

All of these "new" tools: Web,email,VPN,frame relay,tcp/ip, etc

should all have a page very similar to 
http://www.easy400.ibm.it/tcpcfgs

and you are welcome.

(I'll retreat back into my cave for now)
