Hi Paul,

I've never tried to read a file directly from a remote machine because, frankly, it wouldn't occur to me due to accessibllity and/or performance. In these cases, I'd use FTP or something on an HTTP server on the remote side. JTOpen has FTP operations that work; I've even used them between two Windows machines, no AS/400 involved.

If those options aren't possible for some reason, google "java read remote file" and you'll see quite a few possibilities, but they do basically depend on system/network shares or accessibility.

Subject: Read a PC / Windows File From Java on IBM I

From a Java/Tomcat web app running on the IBM i, we are trying to access
and read PDF files stored on a PC server that is on the network. We are
are using java.io.File.

Anyone have experience/success with this?

Thanks, Paul Holm
