O.k., got that!  Now, which version of CA?

Is there a minimum VxRx version of OS/400 that this can run on?

Yes it is on the CA cd-rom.  and even if you don't order CA you should
still have gotten a copy of Ops Nav.

Look at the client access express book for more info on setting up the PC
to see the netserver.
