RE: *RMTSRV - What does this server do?


Talk to PowerTech. Ask if you can use their captured transaction feature to allow the DSTPGMCALL transactions you want to let through and not audit them.

Yes, but I think that is the license server that would be called. (And Powertech strongly suggest that you do not block the license server...)

I understand about 5250 access other than IBM i Access, which is partly why I'm currently logging the events. Seems like for each signon I get
4 calls to the DSTPGMCALL function of *RMTSRV, which is what I expect, from programs QGY/QGYSETG (can't find out what it does) and QSYS/QSYRTUFI (seems to be an API to get info about the user profile).

I'm wondering if I ignore *RMTSRV DSTPGMCALL, am I opening myself up for other unauthorized usage by clever folk trying for some other nefarious connection.

You do not have to have IBM i Access for windows to get a 5250 screen.
You can telnet from another lpar, or from a PC dos prompt. But if you
do use IBM i Access for Windows it will use a host server program to
ensure that you are licensed.
