I started developing a screen scraper app with the API provided by IBM for the iSeries. It works perfectly except for one thing. Whenever I reboot my PC and run the 5250 emulator, it pops up a form with input for SERVER, USER and PASSWORD. This is prior to logging on to the actual green screen session.
The app I have developed is running as an asp.net webpage and I set the IIS app pool identity to match a username/password on the Mapics system. Then in the WS profile I set it up to never prompt me for my ID /Pass and just use Windows credentials which match up to the IIS app pool identity. However, when an IIS worker process spawns the activex PCOMMSession object and opens the IBM 5250 emulator it says that "windows credentials were unavailable".
Any ideas on how to go about opening the 5250 emulator without being prompted for USER/PASS/SERVER?
