Bypass signon is indeed what you are looking for.
However, the i has to be configured to allow it.
We long got over the paranoia that your Windows password should be
different than your IBM i password. In fact, we enforce sameness. You

that to IBM i.
In iNav's Connection properties your choices are:

I agree that with windows 7, passwords can be set the same as IBM. But I
am not ready to make that switch yet. If I had Tivoli Identity manager
that makes it automatic, I would do it.
