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 Vern At 10:43 AM 10/31/2002 -0700, you wrote:

Here's some answers to your questions that I got from our network guys. IBM, could you help us with this???? Thanks! Chris 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.
