I think your problem is in the basics of how IP works. Without seeing the 
netmask, I'm betting both of these IPs are most likely subnet, 
255.255.255.0. If that is true, then no routing or filtering can take 
place the way you want. 

Think of it has everyone on 10.10.18.x being on a party line, everyone 
here's everyone else. You tell George(10.10.18.25) to not let 
John(10.10.18.54) hear or say something. For your filtering to work a few 
things must happen. These must be thought out before you start actually 
doing any of this since I don't anything about your network.

Logically you must seperate 10.10.18.25 and .54 on to seperate networks.

If the number of devices are small you could change the netmask to say 
255.255.255.224. This would create  8 32 address networks
1-31, 32-63, 64-95 etc. If you need more than that then you will need to 
change the subnet itself to say 10.10.19.x for the .54 address.

If you decide to change the network address to 10.10.19.x then ALL devices 
in the 10.10.18.x network must have their default gateways pointing to the 
400 at 10.10.18.25.

There is more to this than above but's it's the basics. The main thing is 
the packets can't have a way around whatever is filtering. To get from .25 
to .54 and get filtered, they must be on different networks.

Further information -

If 10.10.18.25 and 10.10.18.54 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 10.10.18.25 and 10.10.18.54 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?

Thanks,

Steve
