We are currently using 9402-236 running the latest SSP. The LAN is running
NetWare 3.2 (IPX), the PC's are connected to the AS400 through 3
It's time to upgrade the HW - Performance has become an issue.
Micro-Integration gateways worked out great for the 1st 20 users, IPX
traffic has not helped the overall network performance either!
We am thinking of the - AS/400e system model 600 #2134 - (I was told that
the #2129 performs slower than the 9402-236).
Does anyone know anything about the SSP performance in comparison with
Also what are my options as far as connectivity?
We would like to abandon the Twinax Connection and move on to TCP/IP - Cost
is an issue and Client Access & WRQ don't come cheap for 50 users & up!
Also need WAN traffic - IP or SNA!
The app in question runs on SSP, SSP does not support Ethernet w/OS400
Ethernet is not a problem - my concern is any connectivity issues - i.e.,
going from OS400 to SSP!
I realize this is a handful any comment or recommendation is appreciated!
Thank You in advance.
