I believe the routing information of the *origin* device is used - not the destination. i.e. if you can't get *from* the Mac *to* the IBM i - the Mac's routing information seems suspect, not the IBM i's.

The IBM i's routing information would come into play when you're trying to get *from* the IBM i *to* the Mac. "ping"ing the Mac's I/P address from the IBM i might be a useful datapoint... Be aware in the Mac Firewall settings there is a "stealth mode" that, if enabled, will prevent the Mac from responding to a ping - so you'd want that off when you try to ping the Mac.

From the Mac, can you ping the *router* in between the Mac and the IBM i?

You're sure there isn't a firewall in front of the IBM i that blocks/allows incoming traffic based on source I/P addresses?
