As I understand it CA Express has a dynamic port mapping scheme. There is
one port (8477?) that is static and the job of that port is to hand out the
ports for the other connections. So when telnet wants to connect it connects
to 8477 and says "What's the telnet port?" The answer is (usually) 23 and
then telnet connects to port 23.

Is there a way to add new things into that process? I have pc processes that
need to connect to the AS/400, can I use this port-mapping routine for my
own use too? I'd rather be flexible rather than hard-code the ports.
