RE: HELP! XP Users can't connect to IFS



fixed

Mike,

Have you tried "connect using a different user name" or maping the drive
from the DOS prompt?

net use I: \\sol\root password /USER:user

Where I: is the drive you want to map
\\sol\root is the share on the iSeries
password is, well that sould be obvious
user is the name of the user WITHOUT the domain name

Subject: HELP! XP Users can't connect to IFS


Our accounting department uses the IFS to upload information to our Lawson
system. Any users or Win 9x and Winx 2k work just fine, just the Win XP
users are having problems. XP likes to add the domain in front of the
username (i.e. DOMAIN\username). How have you guys got around this, I am at
my wits end. We have tried mapping a drive and that doesn't work. Normally,
they just use a shortcut, which doesn't work either.

Any help would be appreciated!

Mike
