Title: Question on MAPICS XA5 and CLIENT XA5 BROWSER

We are attempting to use the BROWSER software on our computer.  We have found that this software passes the USER Profile information through the Registration Exit Point of QIBM_QZDA_INIT.   This Exit Point is used for both File Transfer and ODBC functions.

At the present time, we have an in-house CL program used in this Exit Point which checks the USER ID to allow only certain users to perform File Transfers from or to the AS400.  Since the BROWSER uses the same Exit Point, only the users cleared for File Transfer are able to use the BROWSER.  We want to continue to limit File Transfers by the User ID, but allow all users to use the BROWSER product. 

Has anyone activated the QIBM_QZDA_INIT Exit Point and run into similar issues when using the BROWSER?  If you did, how did you solve the problem so the BROWSER was available to all but File Transfers were still controlled?

In looking at the IBM Client Express Red Book, SG24-5191, it looks like the Application Administration of Operations Navigator would let us control File Transfers by Administering the Client Applications and restricting File Transfer to only certain users.  Is anyone using the Application Administration of Operations Navigator and controlling File Transfers?  If this really works, we might be able to remove the CL from the above Exit Point and allow the BROWSER to function correctly.

We need to control File Transfers and at the same time use the MAPICS BROWSER for general use.  If this is not possible for us, because of the above Exit Point issue,  I would think that this could be a problem for all users of MAPICS XA who are trying to control File Transfers and at sometime would want to use the BROWSER.

Please send your solutions to Jfignar@automaticproducts.com

Thanks
