Guest user profiles
i5/OS® NetServer™ supports guest user profiles, also known as an
anonymous user profile.
The i5/OS operating system can automatically map an unknown user to
the guest user profile if you specify a guest user profile. Your
network administrator can specify and change the guest user profile
that i5/OS NetServer uses if necessary on the i5/OS NetServer Advanced
- Next start page within System i® Navigator.
In general, the guest user profile should have few authorities because
the guest user is considered an untrusted user.
