DCMI - System i/ iSERIES/ AS400 Q & A Answers

This is heavily influenced by what functions you want. Do you want to give your internal users access to the Internet? Will you just be serving static web pages and a few files via anonymous FTP, or will you be enabling dynamic pages with cgi-bin or Net.Data programs? Are you planning to put in a dedicated iSeries 400, outside your internal iSeries 400 infrastructure? Generally speaking, you need to decide if you want a direct connection to iSeries 400, or an indirect connection via a router. In addition, you need to determine how to adequately protect iSeries 400 and any other machines that could be directly or indirectly accessed.

You will need a legitimate IP address and meaningful network name to be associated with it (ie is associated with 212.34.98.X). Generally, your ISP will do this for you, for a fee. Or, you may get your own IP address from your country's Internet Administration organization (contact in the U.S.).
