Re: Viewing IFS files using Windows Explorer



fixed

Glen,

Do you have iNavigator installed on your PC? This is the easiest and best
way to share a folder from the i5/OS.

Define your connection to your IBM i5/OS system.

To make sure that NetServer is active, follow this branch in iNavigator;
"Your Connection" > Network > Servers >TCP/IP > i5/OS NetServer. Once
there, make sure that this service is started.

Once you have a connection defined pointing to your IBM i5/OS system, and
NetServer started, expand that connection and then the "File Systems"
branch. From there you have a choice. FInd the folder/file in the IFS,
right click and share, or on the File Shares branch, right click and select
New > File Share. I am using the Version 7 of iNavigator as I describe
this. If you have an older version, it may be slightly different.

It makes connections easier if your Windows userid and password match the
i5/OS userid and password, but if they don't it's not a deal breaker. At
least that is how we set up our users to avoid connection issues.

HTH

How do I get to Netserver?

I cant find it under WRKOBJ OBJ(*ALL) OBJTYPE(*SBSD), nor can I find it
under Navigator Pictured below.

I have tried adding additional components under navigator, but no available
components are available to be added.
