SYStem VALue is hosed as far > as security goes, right?... Actually, the best protection you have is to obtain your software from trusted sources. Refusing, even when given good reason, to even temporarily lower your QRSTFRCCVN below, say, 5, will not guarantee you that nobody will be able to sneak malware onto your AS/400; it will only guarantee that there's an awful lot of really good software you'll never be able to install. I've said it before and I'll say it again: QuestView's compatibility with every release of OS/400 from V2R3 through V5R3, and its ability to take advantage of the more advanced releases, while degrading gracefully when run on a system that can't provide all the services it uses, is a matter of pride for us. Personally, I've never once patched a *PGM to system state; I've chosen to keep myself ignorant of anything beyond the most basic theory of how it's done, because I'm not in the business of circumventing security. -- James H.
