Mark,

>some kind of wireless adapter???)

The 400 has to have the telnet server running, which you probably already do.
Other than that, is is just a matter of how you communicate.  EG, if over the
Internet, you may need to configure your firewall to allow access and provide
port mapping, etc.

In my case, I set Mocha to use a non-standard port (instead of 23) and block
port 23 at the firewall.  The firewall filters and drops requests from every IP
address but a very few.  Then I have a Telnet exit program which provides a belt
and suspenders check, and again verifies the IP address and further only allows
certain user IDs from specific IP addresses.

But then I'm trying to access remotely from a cell phone.  If you are talking
about local office wireless access, you'd probably want to use a 802.11b adapter
on the PDA and wireless access point(s) connected to your Intranet.  I've never
done that on a PDA, but that whould provide the same TCP connection Mocha needs
to run the TN5250 client.
