Jim/Tom, Yes - connection goes to same Ethernet card on 400. Not set for TCP only (we use AnyNet). Laptop has Zone Alarm, and I have tried disabling it for a quick test to make sure it wasn't interfering with the connection. Yes, I need to investigate if my ISP is blocking any ports. ...Neil email@example.com Sent by: firstname.lastname@example.org 2002/01/03 21:53 Please respond to midrange-l To: email@example.com cc: Subject: Re: CA Express Map Network Drive over Internet Has anybody out there investigated the implications of these IBM documents? I'd be nervous about these settings without a few additional precautions, and even then I'd wonder. 1) With those ports open, I'd want the traffic restricted to the iSeries IP address, not allowing traffic to/from any other servers in my network. (Seems odd restricting to the iSeries rather than the other way around.) 2) You'd want a Netserver 'guest' profile and definite restrictions on what was shared. 3) I figure access to Netserver would have to be either by IP address or an entry in the remote LMHOSTS file, rather than by Netserver system name. Are those paranoid? Or are they not yet restrictive enough? It's right at the fringe of my knowledge.
