Hello all, The latest in the saga: Trying to get to the operator's console The person who set up the AS/400 here (model 250 running version 5.1) is out until 1/8. It appears that the operator's console has never been accessible. Jim Franz pointed me to an iSeries 101 course online that includes a section "Configure AS/400 Operations Console". In the process of setting up the connection via Client Access Express, there are three options, dialup connection via modem, LAN attach, or or direct cable connection. Using the PC Control Panel to get to Modems, the PC indicates an AS/400 modem is installed on COM2. However walking thru the console configuration steps, I reach a point where the AS/400 software displays a message indicating a modem needs to be installed. The second option, the LAN connection, requires a special CD-ROM that we don't have. Last option: I compared the cables going into the AS/400 and the graphic showing how to cable the 250 model. It looks like we should have been able to use the direct attach option. However when I attempt to enable that option when walking thru the configuration, the direct cable option is displayed protected as though the connection doesn't exist. So none of the three options appears to be set up correctly. If someone on the list is running in the same environment and wouldn't mind giving me their number offline, I would really appreciate being able to discuss this for a few minutes.
