Well, that sounds secure, eh? You could trash every system in the place without even entering the computer room. Have you ever told them you could wreak more damage from the outside than from the inside? No, wait, better not, they might handcuff you even more than you are now. Don't fret, though, I have the perfect solution. You need to move your office so that you're right at the wall of the computer room. Move the front of the AS/400 right up to the wall where your new office is. Have a contractor cut out a 6"x6" piece in the wall where the CD-ROM drive is, install a security door (helps keep the cold air from leaking out of the computer room and prevents unauthorized access to the CD-ROM). Do the same for the other physical access you require - tape drives, control panel. Require different keys for each access, so that your company feels secure in knowing that you could never accidentally or maliciously misuse your access. Sheesh, are they trying to hide a cache of gold bars in there? Dan Bale IT - AS/400 Handleman Company 248-362-4400 Ext. 4952 -------------------------- Original Message -------------------------- I 've searched the archives and everything I've found says this can't be done but I thought I would ask anyway. I'm the new security officer of a recently added AS400. Ie previously existing network. This means I have all the access I could possibly want inside the box, but the powers that be will not give me physical access to the box! We run a TCP/IP network and I want to know if there is anyway to load PTF's etc from my PC's CD-ROM to the AS/400. The only other option available to me is to get them to move the 400 out of god's room and into my office!
