Further information -

If and are both defined interfaces on a single
iSeries, the filter rules work fine.  Unfortunately, this is not what I need
to do - I need to use one system as a "traffic cop" to redirect requests to
a second system.

If and are on separate systems, the same filter
rules as above do not work.  I can only conclude that, when the IP filter
rules change the IP address in the packet, the packet does not get put back
out on the network.

Can anyone confirm or deny this?
