You're welcome...

By "SSO stuff," what I meant was "single sign-on."  By Single sign-on I
mean a number of things, but one of them is how you use the windows and/or
Novell authentication mechanism (which for windows 2k/3k domains is
something called Kerberos) to sign on to OS/400. In a way that allows you
to ignore the OS/400 password...

The SSO support provided by OS/400 in V5R2 is based on Kerberos for
authentication and something called EIM that allows you map from the
Windows ID in a kerberos ticket to the appropriate OS/400 user profile
(whether it is the same name in both places or not).

There is no extra cost for this function. It comes with base OS/400. Lots
of people have implemented it.

I'll send you the info.

Thank you Mr. Botz,
I've not gotten into EIM as much as I'd like.  Dunno what makes up the
pieces, nor which are extra-cost vs. "free".  'Scuse my ignorance, but what
is "SSO stuff"??  (And I wouldn't mind presentation if you get a chance,
dunno when I'd get around to DOing this stuff, which is usually when I get
chance to investigate things more thoroughly (sp?).)
