Scott Mildenberger's suggestion of the pc program logging in with the AS/400
when it starts up is the way I'd tackle this.
You don't need any special software on the pc to write to a shared folder in
the IFS.
The AS/400 software has access to the IFS too ... exchanging an ip address
this way should be fairly straightforward.

Kind regards,

Subject: Finding a specific PC IP address when dynamically assigned


We have an application using Scott's Socktut examples to exchange data
between an iSeries program and our own PC program.
Works a treat when we know the IP address of the specific PC that runs our
program.

In a network where the PC's have dynamically assigned IP addresses (from the
iSeries), is there any way to identify the IP address of a particular PC ?

Thanks
