FYI, I support a remote client without VPN using PuTTY to forward ports through the OpenBSD firewall. This does, of course, require an account to log on the firewall.

I forward the following ports to the iSeries then configure WDSC to use as the system address:


Keep in mind - some of those ports are because I use iSeries Navigator and 5250 with SSL to connect also.

Interesting thought on the SSH. I never thought of that, but we SSH
development box, so I might have to play with that.
Some ssh-clients allow creating a local SOCKS proxy which you can tell
WSDCi to use. ssh also allows compression which helps quite a bit on
large text files.
