Answer number 1 gets the prize. There are definitely things you _cannot_ do on a CISC if you use Express that you _could_ do if you used Classic, even if you are using TCP/IP connectivity. First and foremost is access to printers and the IFS on the AS/400, since NetServer does not exist on your CISC system.

Client Access Express ("Express") has a smaller cleaner footprint than the classic Client Access for Win95/98/NT ("Classic"). But I also thought that was because some things were "missing" in Express (like APPC and IFS access). I thought that Express required Netserver to get at the IFS on the AS/400. If this is so, then Express is not usable (for me) on our CISC (read V3R2) system. However, I have been told both of the following recently: 1) That is correct. There are things you _cannot_ do on a CISC if you use Express that you _could_ do if you used Classic. 2) That is wrong. As long as you stick with TCP/IP connectivity, you can do _anything_ in Express that you could do in Classic.
