I would also ask two questions:

1) Is it a KNOWN FACT that even two 400's (one in DMZ) is:

a) "absolutely" secure (as in better than five 9's)
b) "fairly easy" to set up and administer and
c) provides *unattended* computer to computer access, securely

I recall Bob C. saying, back when that JKL Toys demo project was set up,
that setting it up with two 400's was not a real-world implementation.
(Don't know if his views have changed any.)  I'm willing to sidestep the
cost issue, for now.

If the answer to question 1 is yes:  Can this also be done through LPAR?
