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 
You can set the Autostart option by using UPDDTA QATOCSTART  (file is in 
QUSRSYS) and change Autostart (use capital *NO or *YES).

So I need Operations Navigator to configure Netserver?  How do I install 
Nav?  I.e., is there a CD-ROM?  Is it on the CA disk?  What if you don't 
CA for your system?  Will you still get the CD-ROM?

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 
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 
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 
not user id.  If there is no match and a guest profile is setup, it will 
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.

Subject: Does Netserver do this???

We've got a v4r4 system and want to be able to map AS/400 folders to a 
PC (so we can access them via a separate drive letter in Windows 
My only experience to do this is to install Client Access.  But we don't
to do that in this situation.  I believe I've heard that Netserver has 
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 
it with CA installed?  I.e., open Windows Explorer, choose Map a network
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

Is there still a user signon/password required?
