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.

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, but dunno when I'd get around to DOing this stuff, which is usually when I get a chance to investigate things more thoroughly (sp?).) | -----Original Message----- | [mailto:midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Patrick Botz | Since I am in development and this SSO stuff is free
