Using DDF to go form AIX to DB2 on z/OS

Using DDF to go form AIX to DB2 on z/OS
We currently use DB2 Connect as our Gateway and we'd like to go from AIX
to z/OS DB2 without it. Can this be done using DDF? I know we have a
connection to AIX using DDF but I thought a separate gateway product was
required for non-z/OS applications wanting to access mainframe DB2 data.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

(in response to Matthew Sherman)
You should be able to go from AIX to Z/OS DB2 with no problems. I'm supporting
about 80 AIX servers that do exactly that right now with DB2 Connect. It's
just a matter of cataloging the connection to DB2 correctly. It's documented
in the quick beginnings manual for AIX. If your gateway is on another box from
the AIX box, you'll need the connection software from the other box to the AIX
box (can't remember the exact name of the DB2 Connect component at this moment
as I never use a gateway).
