Disagree.

Find an ethernet card for the AS 400 and all becomes rosy,
and faster,
And more compatable
And faster,
And better,
And more fun
And this is starting sounding like a windows advert.

Or here's a gigabit ethernet NIC for as400 for only $700, which is still
probably lots less than migrating the functions of the as400 to anything
more modern :-)

Ah, I was wrong, the TR support in FreeBSD was completed at some point.
Still, it's a dead technology, it's not supported in m0n0wall
and it's hard to say what it would take to support it.    Not to
mention it's questionable how well it works, since it's extremely unpopular
it can't have been very well tested.

I stand by my earlier suggestion for a Cisco 2600.  That's the path of least
resistance no matter what firewall you end up using.
