Hi guys

we have a customer that wants to provide access to some boxes behind the 
AS/400 directly, but still maintain security. A suggestion that has come up 
is to set IP forwarding on on the AS/400 and use IP filtering to control 
the traffic that gets past the AS/400 (apologies if I haven't phrased this 

I have had a peek at the IP Filtering screens under Ops navigator but it is 
not as helpful as I would like, particularly not for getting started. Does 
anyone have any suggestions or samples to get this underway. I have 
configured the hideous AS/400 firewall in the past (it wasn't a complex 
configuration) so I have had some exposure to configuring firewall rules, 
but the IP Filtering screens and the firewall screens are light years apart.

Any comments on the strategy our customer has adopted or how to get started 
and especially any perceived pitfalls are welcome.

And of course feel free to ask me to make myself clear or provide more 
information :)
