Hello All,

I urgently need some help. I have an IBM power i 7.1 system in my environment right now.

I am trying to access the folders and files on that system using Windows.

I just got a new ERP system called S2K from a company called VAI and they store all there files on the power system.

Some of my users can connect just find to the shared IFS folder on that IBM system and other users can not.

I need some help on what to do, what settings do I need to ensure I have configured correctly on the Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 computers.

I do not have IBM Access for windows installed on any of these computers but mines.

Please help.
