Re: I like the new RDX docking station... Just sayin



fixed

Interesting.

When you connect USB devices do they show up as QOPT devices ?

I'm always wary about plugging in USB devices where they don't belong :-)

One time at a trade show we were giving away laptop USB driven lights and someone grabbed one and apparently plugged it into someone else laptop and zapped it :-)

While installing the internal docking station from IBM (goes in the slot
where a tape drive might go), I noticed that the device was manufactured by
Tandberg Data - which has an interesting 8-slot RDX docking station which
utilizes an iSCSI interface.

There seems to be quite a bit of documentation regarding IBM i support for
iSCSI - but would it work with such a device?

Richard, regarding the BlacX, I would try connecting it to one of the the
Power Server's external USB adapters and see what happens. I have tried
various USB sticks, which work fine - as expected.
