Possible, although _IF_ the users can access the first part of the site
(hosted outside the firewall) then they have 'net access. They _should_ be
able to access the internal iSeries through its public address. Of course
they may have a rule in their firewall that access to the public IP from
their gateway is disallowed, but I don't see why. It's been my experience
that you should use the same IP for external and internal access to the
"same" server. That is, if you're trying to act like an outside user, act
like one.

Walden,

         Not enough information here, but based on what he wrote you need
an internal and external DNS server and the AS/400 needs to be known buy
it's internal address inside the Firewall & it's public address outside the
firewall.  Otherwise insides users may have un-routable messages !!
