WAN connection and AS400

What do I need to configure to allow my remote (WAN)connections access to my AS400?

Here's a quick overview of my network:

remote sites -


LAN Router -

AS400 -

Here's the scenerio:

From I can access everyting on except

From I can access everything on

From I can access

The configuration of my router looks fine and was double checked. the router is using OSPF, RIP is not enabled. I don't know much about the AS/400.

Do i need to enable something on the router to allow traffic to pass AS400.

Re: WAN connection and AS400


I believe that what you are describing is that the AS400 can access anything within its own local subnet ( and can not access things outside its own local subnet. That sounds like there is a problem with the configuration of the default gateway on the AS400 (if the AS400 is configured to operate as an IP host) or there is a problem with its default route (if it is configured to support routing). Since both situations are possible it will be important to find someone who can tell you how the AS400 is configured.

To specifically answer your last question: I do not believe that there is anything that you need to configure on your router to allow traffic to pass the AS400. I believe it is a problem in how the AS400 is configured. And therefore the solution will be on the AS400.
