We have around 400 PC connected to 4 Win2K server in our office. In other way, we also have 1 AS/400 server. I wonder, can I connect our PC computers to our AS/400 server?
Connect is a wide term, but the answer to your question is a big yes.
Using plain IP you can:
Transfer file to and from AS/400 by FTP send remote commands from the PC's to the AS/400 Telnet from the pc to the AS/400 and get sign-on screen Share printers with the AS/400 Publish AS/400 directories in network neighborhood.
By using the Client Access product you can also:
Connect to the AS/400 by using ODBC driver
Connect to resources on the AS/400 using OLE DB
Manage the AS/400 using operation navigator.
Many more examples are available (you will need of course to be physically connected for example on an Ethernet network).
