In my previous TechTip, I discussed the benefits and capabilities of mapping a network drive to the IBM i. In this TechTip, I will discuss the opposite perspective: how the IBM i can access external resources by mapping a drive from the IBM i.

Back in the early '90s, I used to work for Verizon when it was known as GTE. The company was in the process of computerizing a lot of its operations, and many people were bemoaning the fact that it was laying off most of its operators. Company executives foresaw a competitive landscape in the future, and they were desperately trying to figure out a way to get into broadband communications. The problem was that much of the telephone infrastructure was based on twisted-pair, and it didn't offer enough bandwidth to carry video, being designed a century earlier to handle only telephone calls.

Partner TechTip: Don't Forget These User Profile Attributes

Do your users have "limited capability," or do you just think they do?

You don't hear as much about the user profile setting of "limited capabilities" as you used to in the early days of OS/400. In the early releases, configuring users' initial program to launch them directly into the appropriate application as well as setting users' initial menu to *SIGNOFF and their limited capability attribute to *YES was about all an administrator had to do to make sure the data residing on an AS/400 was secure.


Those days are long gone....
