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, Jeffrey E.

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 ?
