Please help me with this:

I need to replicate data from AS/400 to Windows 2000. What products do I need?

Existing environment:
Win2K - DB2 UDB 7.2 fixpack 8
AS/400 - V5R1

Do I need to buy the data propagator tool as a separate product? Do I need data propr tool for both operating systems? I want my target server to be the control server.
Can I look at the AS/400 DB from the control center without installing data propagator on AS/400 machine?

Are third party tools worth the money in this scenario?
