Yes the old Navigator delivered in i 6.1 I believe is now referred to as Heritage Navigator.

You CAN run both but with current PTFs Heritage navigator will no longer start automatically, you must manually start the ADMIN2 instance. This is due to potential log4j vulnerability.

'Client Access' or referred to for years now as 'dead nav' is completely replaced by the combination of Access Client Solutions, and Navigator for i. This has already been the case for many years.

So, is the old nav now called heritage? Can I still run the old nav with
the new nav and acs at the same time? What replaces the old client access
which we still use today? Anyone else still using the old client access?
Thanks, Frank

My new Navigator's been broken since the beginning, so I'm late to the

party. I just discovered that it works fine if I let it crash and then

restart it.

I started using new Navigator this week. So far, I've discovered that you

can't change a user profile output queue (confirmed by IBM), and there

doesn't appear to be a way to change TCP/IP Server properties. New

Navigator seems half-baked and not ready for primetime.

If not for IBM's decision regarding hertiage Nav and log4j, I'd advise to

stear clear of new Nav. As it is, IBM hasn't left us much choice.

The more I use this new tool, the more I like it. It's fast (especially

considering how slow the old interface was) and has about all I need in

there. The parts that are not there tend to be in ACS.

With the realization that the old navigator is compromised by the most

recent security flaws, I believe it is imperative to get those PTF groups

on, and disable the old navigator. No excuses for management to hold off

any longer.
