Hi, We have an AS/400 running as a webserver (V4R4), and we have the following problem: We want our salesmen to connect to the AS/400 using the Internet. When the connection is made, a Visual Basic program must to be able to sent some data to a dataueque residing on the AS/400. Does anybody know how this can be done in a secure way? Any help will be helpful. Best wishes - Jan Jorgensen

Hi Jan, No ideas about VB, I don't mess with it, but java can do this with SSL or encryption. If you want to use the webserver as opposed to direct sockets, you can set it up with SSL, input through an HTML form and then have a servlet ( java again -- if you want to go through it and probably be slower, could use CGI ) either pass to another program or directly do the the data queue or other ipc processing.

You could use MQSeries software. MQSeries provides you with two things. A good secure way of transmitting transactions over the Internet and it puts data queues under commit control. When you read from a queue and a program abends, the transaction can be lost unless it is under some kind of commit control. You must have version 4.4 to have the commit control. Under V4.3 you can install MQSeries and transmit transactions. Another option is to install a VPN box for your network. We use a Nortel VPN box. You install software on the remote PC and it sends encrypted data between the PC and the VPN box. You can set it to use a public key or a preshared key encryption. The advantage of the VPN box is it encrypts all TCP/IP traffic.

Sometimes we find things in other things. Something to consider: A Java-based Web-to-host application that allows SECURE Web browser access to AS/400 applications and Data. No programming required, unique "wizards" quickly produce easy-to-use applets for (1) 5250 Terminal emulation (2) Viewing and/or printing reports (spool files) (3) Database applications. If you would send me your tele or e-mail address, I can get you some information on the following if your interested. email@example.com
