Hi Bryan

Tried what, if it doesn't sound (too) stupid of me? I installed the 
iSeriesODBC-5.1.0-0.14.i386.rpm file but the binaries it provides don't 
appear to be related to any 5250 I'm familiar with. The cwbping utility 
worked fine against the Netshare400.com box, but I can't find any 5250 
references other than in the page you quoted above.

If it's the cwbcopwr program, what magic is required to invoke it? 
        $ /opt/ibm/iSeriesODBC/bin/cwbping netshare
finds the netshare box (defined in /etc/hosts) but
        $ /opt/ibm/iSeriesODBC/bin/cwbcopwr /SYS:netshare /SVC:8
results in
        *ERROR* System named does not exist, no changes can be made.
and if I drop the /SVC:8 (signon request aiui) I get this
        umm, something was messed up on the command line, try again

Any pointers gratefully received

I'll probably give the iSeries Access for Web beta a try at work this 
week, if I get the chance.
