If you're looking to access the data on the 400 you need a data provider. IBM's Client Access provides one for .Net and for ODBC. Since you're probably not able to use the .Net one I suggest you use the ODBC one.

From your point of view it's like connecting to DB2.

Make sure the Database TCP server is running on the 400. That is done via the STRTCPSVR command.

Just understand that the AS400, from a database point of view, is just like any other database. Treat it like you would SQL Server, Oracle, etc.
