Okay, if you can ping your AS/400 from your PC, or vice versa, then they can "see" each other. Lets see, your AS/400 has 2 IPs, 10.160.9.59 and 10.160.9.66. Your subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 so this means that your AS/400 should be able to "see" directly (without using gateway) any other machine in your network with 10.160.9.xxx Your PC is using DHCP so it could be getting any address, I'm assuming your DHCP is set to serve the 10.160.9.xxx subment. Can you, from your PC, PING 10.160.9.66 ? If you can, then you can see your AS/400 on your local network. How your 2 default routes are going to work is beyond me, although the default route should not come to play when talking on your local network (10.160.9.xxx). *DFTROUTE *NONE 10.160.9.254 10.160.9.59 *DFTROUTE *NONE 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 I believe you probably want to put a subnet mask on the second one, your TRNLINE71, but if it's working now, I wouldn't mess with it as I could be wrong on that. In short, if you can ping your AS/400 from your PC, and/or your PC from your AS/400 (run the DOS command IPCONFIG on your PC to find it's current IP address) then they can see each other. Then it's just a matter of setting up the software. --------------------------------- Short note on IP addresses, local networks, subnet masks and default gateways. Any machine that has an IP address should also have a subnet mask. It conbines these two to determine which IP's it can talk to directly (are on the local network) and which it has to use the gateway for (Wide Area Network). Your local subnet seems to be set up as 10.160.9.xx with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Any IPs a machine in your local network try to contact with 10.160.9 they will try to talk to directly. If they can't find them directly, they give up. Any IP address outside of that range they will ask the Default Router to get for them. The Loopback IP address (usually defined 127.0.0.1) is an IP address that means this machine. When you connect to 127.0.0.1 or loopback you are talking to your own machine. It is sometimes called Localhost.
