Thanks for the information, however, I believe that this is the closest   
that you can come to a profile with no access (aside from purchasing your   
product).  I would be interested in knowing what the original poster   
needs such a profile for - emulation to host connection?

Eric,

Sadly even QUSER has too much authority on a default AS/400.  Through   
both
your shop's (really most shop's, I'm not picking on you) and OS/400's
liberal use of *PUBLIC access, QUSER is authorized to a number of things
that you wouldn't want the real *PUBLIC (remember in the internet world
*PUBLIC can now literally be the whole freaking world!) to have access   
to.

Also, sadly, LMTCPB does not prevent command execution from networked   
users.
LMTCPB only works with QCMD.  Any networked system running Client Access,
DDM, or FTP can slip right under the RMTCMD gate without being blocked,   
or
even logged.  What's amazing is that this means every /400 with PC's
attached has had this vulernability since the early days of PC support.   
 It
just took the 'user friendlyness' of W95 to make it so hard to ignore.

(Hmmm... that may have been a thinly vailed plug for our product, guess I
should declare myself a vendor.  :)


HTH,

jte
