      I have a situation where I am not able to connect to the iSeries box after I  connect through a VPN.  The following are the steps that I do:
1.  Login to a Cisco VPN from my company to a client's company which is successful. Then I try to login to the iSeries where I get a timed out error. I am able to connect to my client outside of my company (from home) following the same steps. Any help in resolving this is appreciated.

PC5250 Emulation needs specifc ip-ports open:

Server Mapper(449)

=> What TCP/IP ports does Client Access use?

Look slike these ports are open. Now I am able to connect through VPN and then sign on to AS/400. My colleauges are not able to sign on to AS/400 even though they are able to connect through VPN. They are using MOCHA to connect to AS/400. Any suggestion on this. I switched my laptop to a new one and that is how I got on to the VPN and the AS/400.
