We have serveral pc's in the shop.
When tring to access the iseries IFS i do
the following in windows xp pro:

Start/run \\11.0.0.4 <file:///\\11.0.0.4>

On some pc's it brings up the list of folders on the iseries. On other
pc's
I get a "connecting to" logon screen requiring userid and password. After
entering a valid iseries userid and password, it just returns the same
logon
screen again.

I tried this process on server pc's with the same network and iseries
user.
Some pc's work fine. Other don't work at all.


Tim -

On one of the PC's where it rejects the userid and password and redisplays
the logon screen, try again using the systemname/username (as if you were
logging in with domain/user) instead of just the user name. This technique
has worked for me in the past...
