Sorry guys,

I was out to lunch.

Yes, I'm able to ping the AS/400 from PC and vise versa. When I use Explorer
from windows I don't get anything using IP or AS/400 name.
I will like to map folders from 400 to my windows explorer.  Note that I'm
not using CA or CAE, I use Reflection for my thin client to the AS/400.
