Easy Dan, using NetServer on your 400, you can install Client Access directly from the 400 without the CD. Catch 22 ! ;-) Yes, you need OpsNav, so install CA Express from the Client Access Family for Windows CD, or if you have some CA installed but not Ops Nav run IBM Client Access Express/Selective Setup. You can actually configure basic NetServer, including a guest profile (but not file shares), without OpsNav - from a green screen. Read informational APAR's II11239 & II11240 (SNDPTFORD II11239 ...etc. - or read online). To start & end manually, on V4R4 (maybe V4R3) and higher, just use STRTCPSVR *NETSVR or ENDTCPSVR *NETSVR. You can set the Autostart option by using UPDDTA QATOCSTART (file is in QUSRSYS) and change Autostart (use capital *NO or *YES). ...Neil D.BALE@handleman.com Sent by: email@example.com 2001/01/26 12:46 Please respond to MIDRANGE-L To: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com cc: Subject: RE: Does Netserver do this??? So I need Operations Navigator to configure Netserver? How do I install Ops Nav? I.e., is there a CD-ROM? Is it on the CA disk? What if you don't order CA for your system? Will you still get the CD-ROM? Dan Bale IT - AS/400 Handleman Company 248-362-4400 Ext. 4952 -------------------------- Original Message -------------------------- On the AS400 you need to configure and start NetServer. You will be defining shares much like you do on Wintel boxes. You can also setup public access and a guest profile for people that do not have signons to your AS400. Netserver uses the same UserID/Password that you use to logon to the PC. If they match the AS400 signon, no second signon window. If the user ids are the same and not the password, you will be prompt for the password, not user id. If there is no match and a guest profile is setup, it will use the guest profile with no logon window. By the way, to configure Netserver you use Ops Nav, Network, Servers, TCP/IP. You can define shares there or from the file system. Object security for shares is handled under the file system, not Netserver. Christopher K.

We've got a v4r4 system and want to be able to map AS/400 folders to a Win9x PC (so we can access them via a separate drive letter in Windows Explorer). My only experience to do this is to install Client Access. But we don't wish to do that in this situation. I believe I've heard that Netserver has this function, and that it is included as part of the OS in v4r4. If true, how does one set up a PC to do this? Is it similar to how I would do it with CA installed? I.e., open Windows Explorer, choose Map a network drive under the Tools tab? How does one make the PC "see" the AS/400? What if there are multiple AS/400s you want to access? Any additional considerations? Is there still a user signon/password required?
