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.|
