Products for screen redisplay

Our network consist of two AS400 and several NT servers. We are hosting our Web site on one of the AS400s. We have an application running on a Win2000/MS SQL platform. Is there a way to deploy that app on the Web using the AS400 as the entry point? We have an existing link on our main page to run a data screen entry running on the same AS400 box. (ILERPG/HTML). I would like to link that instead to the SQL box.

A vendor suggested Citrix MetaFrame, but we would like to get away from adding another box to our LAN and save money. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

If you want to do a screen redisplay, Citrix has a good product, but you're right, it's pricey. You can also look at VNC, which is similar but open-source. There is even a Java VNC client which will run in a Web browser. Look at http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/ for details.
