Shared Folders and Windows 98
Shared Folders is not currently supported for Windows 98.
Shared Folders and Windows 2000
Under Windows 2000, due to system security policies, restricted users cannot disconnect a Shared Folder drive. Attempting to do so results in an "Access denied" error message, and the drive becomes inaccessible or unusable, although it is still visible. Also, if the restricted user logs off and then logs on again, all drives that were mapped before the user logged off become inaccessible.
The following options are available for restricted users:
If mapped drives do become inaccessible because a restricted user attempted to disconnect them, or logged off and then logged on, inaccessible drives remain visible until the user reboots. If mapped drives must be completely disconnected, the restricted user must also reboot.
|If you are logging in as Administrator under Windows 2000, and you will be using Shared Folders, be sure to fill in all Sign-on options such as User ID and Password within 5250 Tools - Shared Folders AS400 Communications Configuration.|
You will find additional keyboard drivers in the Keyboard_Drivers folder of the CD. These keyboard drivers do not have the Windows XP logo.
|To use FTP to transfer files, you must be able to make a TCP/IP connection and your host must have an FTP server. Before you begin, you must know the name or IP address of the host to which you want to connect.|
Pathway Personal FTP Server
Pathing for the Pathway Personal FTP Server v. 6.4 always uses UNIX syntax, even when it is installed on a Windows-based server. The command line may not be in synch with the displayed file tree, so graphical UI may not reflect the current working directory.
File Transfer Settings
When prompted for File Transfer Settings because Prompt for Transfer Options is selected, file transfer cannot be stopped using the Cancel button.
Save Session and Save Session As
Save Session (CTRL+S) retains, by default, the filename from the last Save Session As, regardless of session changes made in either Connection Name drop-down list box. Care must be taken not to accidentally overwrite saved connections.
Up to 250 lines of text can be copied from the Session Window (real time trace window) using CTRL+C (Copy) and CTRL+V (Paste).
Installation in a Restricted/Limited User Environment
During an installation in a restricted/limited user environment, when accessing the Attachmate FTP FileTransfer Install from the Enterprise Options setup panel, the Windows Run-As dialog box does not display to give the administrator an opportunity to install the product.
The workaround is to navigate to the \ATM_FileTransfer subdirectory on EXTRA! CD2 and run the setup.exe program from there.
Restoring Sessions after Upgrading
After upgrading Attachmate FTP File Transfer, lost sessions can be easily restored. To restore any lost sessions, copy the .ftconfig and .ftsession files from the \Program Files\Attachmate\FileTransfer directory to My Documents\Attachmate\FileTransfer\Sessions.
