How can I manage IBM i NetServer without IBM i Navigator?
The GO NETS tool provides a menu to configure the IBM i NetServer and related file and print shares from your emulation session. It includes interfaces to the NetServer APIs, as well as a menu of commands.
GO NETS is a user tool and is shipped in the QUSRTOOL library, under license program 57##SS1, option 7.
Before the tool can be used, the menu must be created. To do so, follow the instructions in the next section.

CRTLIB LIB(NETSRVCMD) TEXT('i5/OS NetServer menu and commands')
