Re: Viewing IFS files using Windows Explorer



fixed

Glen,

Here's something else to try. If your user profile has not been disabled as
far as the Netserver component is concerned, you should be able to have
Windows search for a computer on your network. I use XP Professional, and I
can click Start, Search, For Files and Folders, Computers or people, A
computer on the network, then the IP address or name of your iSeries.
Double click on that machine, and you will be prompted for your iSeries
profile and password. If it's enabled in the Netserver component, you
should then be able to see the shared folders. From there, you should be
able to map a network drive to the folder you need.

Hope this helps.

Everybody refers to navigator options that I do not have.

I think I will reinstall Client Access and hopefully have the options
through navigator as discussed. I just remember that in the past I was
able
to get to the IFS through Windows Explorer. It may be that the navigator
components for IFS are a prerequisite.

Hi Glen,

The ADDLNK command doesn't create directories, it creates links. Yo
ucould potentially have a directory in another location, and make a link
to it from /home/GLEN using ADDLNK. Is that what you mean?

Others have already explained how to export a share using NetServer, so
I won't delve into that part of your question.

But, I want to make sure you didn't create a link by accident when you
really meant to create a subdirectory. That could be a real nightmare
later on, if done by mistake.

Using ADDLNK command, I have created a sub-folder GLEN under folder
/home.
This can be verified using WRKLNK.
