It turns out, that's not exactly what I'm looking for. iACS, NetServer and Apache all connect without any special user action (i.e. authentication is completely invisible to the user). That's what I'm working on. That code there requires the user to supply their Windows credentials.

Wow, this is embarrassing. Not only did my Google skills fail me, but so did my memory.

Thanks so much!

I see a post of yours to developerworks from 2018 -
- it looks like you were successful then, has something changed?

I have a stand-alone Java app that will run on Windows that needs to authenticate using Enterprise Identify Mapping (EIM). EIM is configured on IBMi, and the PC can connect using EIM to 5250, NetServer, Apache, etc.

My assumption is that I need a parameter on my connection string, but I can't seem to find one. I looked thru this list (, but I didn't see anything. I tried setting "prompt" to false, but the connection simply failed.

Does anyone know how to do this?
