Don, Thanks for the reply, but is there another way to start RSE other than with a fresh install? I've had WDSC installed for 3 or 4 months and after taking a week or more to get it installed and working i don't want to un-install it just to see if i can get RSE to work. I'm running win98se and have just installed SP3 to WDSC. I have looked at the help and cannot fine the options that it tells you to use. Thanks Bill email@example.com wrote:
Bill, The Remote Systems Explorer (RSE) is a "perspective" in the WDSc workbench. A perspective is simply a way of telling the workbench which type of development you would like to do (i.e. Java, XML, Web, ...). The RSE perspective is used for remote development of RPG and COBOL on your iSeries. After a fresh install of WDSc when you start the workbench you are automatically opened in the RSE perspective so selecting Perspectives > Open > Other > Remote Systems Explorer will just open another RSE perspective. A couple tips: 1. You can tell which perspective you are in by looking at the title bar of the workbench. 2. As you open more perspectives they appear as icons in the left hand bar of the workbench. Click on any of the icons to switch to the other open perspectives. So, now that you have the RSE perspective open you need to create a connection to your iSeries. You do this by expanding the New Connection entry in the Systems View (left hand side of the workbench.) You will likely be prompted for a "profile name", this is for team support so you can just except the default or enter a user name for yourself. Next you need to define your hostname, connection name (this is what will appear in the Remote Systems tree view), user id... Click Finish, now you have your first iSeries connection. Expand the connection and explore away .... Hope this helps. Of course if I have completely missed your question just let me know!
