Hello,

You can find the information on setup for this at the following website.

Yes and no.

The /QNTC file system allows you to access directories on Windows servers that have shares defined out to the Windows network. (Actually, more than just “servers”. It’s usually easy to have any WinNT or newer PC participate.

However, your AS/400 can’t execute any of the executeables you might see there. In order to use them, you need to send a command to a PC in the network to tell that PC to run the function. (You also need to send the path to the file you want to run. Remember that a path for a share seen by your AS/400 probably won’t be the same path that is known to the PC.

As long as the PC has a rexec() service running, your AS/400 can use the RUNRMTCMD command to cause the executeable to run. Often, the easiest rexec() to locate and install is the iSeries Access Remote Command feature.

You’ll want to set up a local user ID and password on the PC. This will be how the AS/400 authenticates the request to the PC.

So the AS/400 can’t “call” a batch program on a PC, but it can tell the PC to call it.
