Use the map drive function in windows or you could write a small program to do it for you.

    how do i map a pc to the as400 What do you mean by "map a PC"? Do you want to create a mapped drive on a PC that accesses a shared directory on your AS/400? Or do you want your AS/400 to access a shared directory that is served by the PC? (Or is there something else that you mean?) Tom

    Thank you for replying, I know how to map a drive but couldn't connect to the AS400. I am not sure of why, but I remembered to use the qsecofr id and it worked. I am connecting to qdls but forgot about the signon. I am now connected correctly.

    I remembered to use the qsecofr id... Your system probably should not allow the QSECOFR profile to connect like that, nor should QSECOFR be used for any normal activity. I am connecting to qdls... Unless this is version 4 or earlier, /QDLS should be ignored and not used. Use the /root directory instead. That's not always easy depending on how applications are written on the AS/400 side, but files can be copied into or out of folders easily once they've been uploaded to a /root directory. The /QDLS file system is an old DOS & OS/2 file system. Each version of Windows provides less support, especially through any Windows networking. At some probably near time, Windows may stop supporting it entirely. IBM hasn't updated it on the AS/400 for years. Tom

    First you have to make sure that IFS is set up on the server and you have shares. You can get to the interface for netserver from the command line if its all set up by doing an 'addlible netsrvcmd' and then 'go nets'. If it isnt configured follow these steps: http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/software/netserver/qusrtool.html Once netserver is on its just a matter of mapping to the UNC patch by IP or Name of the netserver.

    Once netserver is on its just a matter of ... Not quite. There is authentication that is also required. (It's assumed that "shares" already cover the additional authorization after authentication.) And because this issue involves /QDLS, proper system directory entries need to exist. That's completely outside of any part of NetServer. And if the client is Windows, appropriate fix packs from MS may need to be installed on the PC as well as PTFs from IBM on the server. Those need to be coordinated to match the Windows and AS/400 OS versions. (All of that might already be down, but it often isn't.) All told, the best course is simply not to use /QDLS at all. Tom
