ASP.Net 3.5 connection to AS400

I need to connect to an AS400 database base and run a query from my web application....

Can anyone offer a suggestion on the best way to connect to a 400 using VB.NET?

I assume this can be done using ODBC but I dont know how.....plus I would prefer a quicker method if one exists.

If you can install software on the server, Client Access comes with the iSeries .NET Data Provider that makes accessing data and programs easy.

Thanks, I can install software on the server. Can you give me an example connection string using the .NET provider?

Connection strings for AS/400 (IBM iSeries)

I should always be a fan of the HiT drivers:
