IBM i NetServer

IBM® i Support for Windows Network Neighborhood (IBM i NetServer) is an IBM i function that enables Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista clients to access IBM i shared directory paths and shared output queues.

Windows clients on a network use the file and print sharing functions that are included in their operating systems. You do not need to install any additional software on your PC client to use and benefit from IBM i NetServer. However, if you need to administer IBM i NetServer properties from your PC client, you must have IBM i Access for Windows, System i® Navigator, and Host Servers (Option 12) installed.
