View Full Version : V3R2M0 laptop wants to login in when not attached to network
01-01-1995, 02:00 AM
I have been using V3R2M0 w/service pack SF59075 with W98 PC's on an NT network with SNA access to RAS AS/400. During the holidays, one of our staff attorneys purchased a laptop with Windows ME, with modem and network card. I installed CA and service packs and all performed well across the network. However, when the NIC is ejected or laptop is not connected to LAN, Client Access asks for login for AS/400 resource. This is annoying for the client. Would like to be able to boot the laptop without seeing the AS/400 login when the laptop is not attached to network. Defeating or not completing the login also seems to hang the laptop on shutdown. When it is connected to the network, it shuts down normally. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Leslie, This is most likely happening because the laptop is set up to request a connection to the 400. The most likely cause would be it is checking the service pack level at every boot. If you go to Start/Programs/IBM Client Access/Client Access Properties. Under the Service tab, you will find the frequency of this activity. I guess in your case, you would want it to never check the service pack level. One other possibility would be that the laptop has a "virtual" printer defined that is accessed through the 400, and something wants to "ping" that printer. I had this happen whenever Netscape would start, it would bring up the connection dialog. Bill

The service check was disabled/set to never during the install. The laptop does not have any printers installed, but I suspect that 'virtual' access to AS400 resources maybe involved. Do you know anything about selective resource utilization?

One other idea, it's a little drastic: Try installing Client Access Express. We are in the process of converting everyone here and is working quite well. Bill
