Chris & John

We use VPN, and I have no problems. It is as if I am on the company's
internal network, from home.

Ask your network folk whether your home machine will behave and be treated
like a local machine (on the company net). I assume that is the Remote
Access piece.

Will you have terminal emulation, as in Client Access, or will they have
you using a web-based emulation?

WDSC runs stand-alone on the client almost completely - it is not web
enabled. And it communicates with a couple servers on the 400 (debug for
one), and their ports are known (4200 is the one not for debug).

Will you be developing green screen stuff, or Java, or WebSphere
Application Server, or what other kind of thing WDSC can do? We are
exclusively doing C on the 400, very little display stuff, almost all utility.

HTH a little

I work with John and we desperately want to be able to use WDSCI from home.
Here's some answers to your questions that I got from our network guys. IBM,
could you help us with this????



Could you first clarify (technically) what you exactly mean by portal ?
SunONE Portal 6.0 with Secure Remote Access Pack
Basically we plan on using this portal remotely for accessing the AS/400. It
is capable of running any application that is "web enabled" or an
application that can be redirected to a local port.

Obviously it is not a portal website like 'Yahoo' ?
It can be. That is what Yahoo is using or their Web Site.

Or do you mean it's a VPN ?
We will utilize the capabilities to achieve similar results as a VPN. For
example: Remote File Access, Remote Host Access and E-mail and Calendaring.
