It looks like I have a little reading to do. Many thanks for your help. I'm
going for a strong coffee.

For DDM anyhow, there is directly TCP/IP support; i.e. no need for AnyNet
support. Per reference in a followup reply, to "one legacy
AS/400 running v5r1 in an 'old' office, due to be shut down in 6 to 7
months. I only need the Anynet connection until then, connecting it to the
iSeries in the 'new' office.":

I have configured AnyNet and it works in the isolation of each network
but does not seem to want to connect over the broadband.
I'm guessing that the bb-router/firewall may be one issue.

Redbooks document SG24-5291
_SNA and TCP/IP Integration_
"... On the TCP/IP side of the process, you have to designate a special port
(TCP and UDP) for use by AnyNet SNA over IP. This enables the TCP/IP stack
to route SNA over IP packets to AnyNet while native IP packets are sent to
their proper destination. The port number normally used is 397, the
well-known port for SNA over IP. Both TCP and UDP are required because
AnyNet uses UDP datagrams for expedited SNA data even if the normal data is
flowing on a TCP connection. ..."
