NetServer was introduced with V4R2.

Well, we're running V3R2 here, how do I tell if Netserver is "available"?  Any
specific commands on the AS/400?

Also, for whatever releases that support Netserver, how does one initiate
using it?  Is it part of the base operating system?  Or is it an LPP option
that needs to be explicitly selected for installation?

Say I'm a new user with a non-CA client, what do I do to see if I can access
the IFS via Netserver?

Using Netserver to share directories in the IFS works without any Client
Access installed.  But I cannot remember when Netserver was introduced to
the AS400.  Was is available in 3.2?  I think so.  Windows clients cannot
tell the difference between Unix, NT or AS400 shares, supposedly.

OK, copied it to the IFS root, no problems using a long filename from there.

One of the issues I'm dealing with here is that I'm developing an
that will make me the next Brad Stone <g> and it requires copying an AS/400
file to a location from where Microsoft Word can insert the file into a
document.  So I need to keep it as flexible as possible in terms of all the
different AS/400 setups out there for potential customers.  I need to think
terms of OS/400 release independence (V3R2 on up) and different users'
software and hardware.

Which brings up another question.  Is my ability to map a drive in Windows
Explorer dependent on using Client Access?  If it is, how do non-CA Windows
users gain access to the IFS?

Also, I'm not sure I really want to dump these files into the IFS root, so I
did another test creating a BALED directory in the root directory, copying
file there; the long filename appeared to work fine in this case as well.
Regarding AS/400 security, is this something I'll be able to "get away with"
on most AS/400s out there?  John Earl, comments?
