Hi, I am unable to explore the AS/400 shared folders on the PC having Windows XP Sp2, but printers are visible. There is no issue as such on OS windows 95/98. Can any one help me in this regard... Thanks satish

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You might want to explain your problem better. One thing to watch out for is the name of the Network Place. Be sure that you are only using characters valid in a Windows file name. For example, remove any slashes which are included as a default.

You should not have any difficulty in mapping to any IFS directory without a problem.

    Hi, I had posted this query some time back but i am surprised no body helped me in this case.. It seems either everybody knows the solution of this problem or nobody knows it ?? My problem is My AS/400(v4R1) shared folders are not visible in the My Network Places of Windows XP Sp2 machines. This was not the problem with Windows 9X desktops as the shared resources were visible in the Network Neighborhood there. thanks satish

    AFAIK, you can't access V4R1 shared folders with WinXP. V4R1 is simply too old. Windows has changed its protocol for asking about network shares. You need to update your V4R1 to keep up with modern protocols or use clients that still can communicate with old, obsolete Windows protocols. Would you expect WinXP to find shares on an old DOS PC?
