How to's in Hacking AS400

I've hacked several AS400s over the years.

Here's some starter's:

1. Check for shares made *PUBLIC
2. Try all the default system IDs with default passwords
3. Sniff the client. There are versions that send unencypted traffic. Telnet sadly works too.
4. Hunt through surrounding systems like backup servers, desktops. These often have batch jobs in text files that 
automatically login to AS400.
5. Use Jack Henry's default login. (My Favorite, the easiest and laziest way to go)

There are more advanced techiques with the libraries, but this will take more time than I have at the moment. Excuse 
me, but I need to go pan-handle.
