IBM 5494 Controller Connected to Cisco 2621

I have a IBM 5494 Controller that I am connecting to a Cisco 2621. Does anyone know of some good documentation for this? I am planning on creating a VPN connection between two sites over a 640K DSL line for the IBM 5494. Is it best to put the Cisco 2621 and IBM 5494 on the outside of the PIX 506 and create the VPN via the routers or better to put this behind the PIX 506 and use IPSec to create the VPN? NAT is enable in the PIX so I uncerstand there is some type of configuration changes I need to make to the PIX in order to allow the DLSw traffic to go through.
I consider this to be very difficult.

I wouldn't use DLSw because of the overhead. I'd use LLC2 for the AS/400 communication and run a separate "channel" for the IP traffic.

But, try this site:

Good luck.

The custmer has changed up and went with client access on all workstations eliminating the need for green screens at this location.
