Agreed. NetServer is great. Be aware, though, that you must have the MS Networking client installed on NetServer client PCs. And, for Win9x, the MS networking client user ID must match an existing OS/400 user profile name (otherwise, you'll need to use NetServer's guest user ID--which sorta defeats the purpose of authorities over the IFS). NT Server and NT Workstation don't have this limitation. rp > >> I need some ammunition to throw at them. > > Do it. One of the best thing IBM ever did.
