Some shops have a single AS/400 and a one-person IS shop. WebSphere on the AS/400 is pretty easy to maintain. Allow only port 80 through your firewall, and you've got a reasonably secure environment. But I agree that I'd rather not put my mission-critical machine on the Internet. > > Heck, on my system I have a firewall > > that blocks port 21, and an internal non-addressable network, > and I STILL > > only start the FTP server on my AS/400 when I need it. > > I am trying to think when that would be. It seems reasonable to > make the AS/400 the FTP client, not server. About the only time I use it is to upload a savefile to my AS/400. It's still easier to me to use the FTP client from W2K and do a PUT to a savefile. Joe
