What is the AS/400 Setup Wizard?The wizard has two primary functions: TCP/IP and DHCPConfigurationPTF unicationConfigurationIBM Network Station Family of Thin ClientsTCP/IP Setup

What is the AS/400 Setup Wizard?Initial TCP/IP SetupSets TCP/IP host nameSets TCP/IP domain nameSets TCP/IP domain name serversIBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Installing the AS/400 Setup WizardPC RequirementsProcessor: Pentium 100 MHz or greaterOperating System: Microsoft Windows 95, NT 4.0, or 98Software: Client Access ExpressMemory: At least 16 MB for Windows 95/98, and 24 MB for NTInstalling Client Access Express and Service Pack 1Service Pack 1 of Client Access Express (V4R4) MUST be installed!!For information on how to order/get Client Access, check this htmFor troubleshooting or known problems on Client b.htmIBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Installing the AS/400 Setup WizardInstalling WizardMake sure that AS/400NetServer is "started"Open Operations NavigatorExpand the systemExpand Network, then Servers.Double-click on TCP/IP.In the right pane, look for AS/400NetServer and verify status is StartedIf Stopped, right click on AS/400NetServer and choose StartUse Client Access Express Selective Setup to install the WizardClick on your Start menu -- Programs -- IBM AS/400 Client Access -- SelectiveSetupOn the Selective Setup screen, enter the following as the source nV2\IBM.NSWizardAt the Component Selection dialog, expand AS/400 Operations Navigator and check thebox for Network Station Setup Wizard.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Installing the AS/400 Setup WizardScanning for plug-insOperations Navigator will automaticallydetect that a new plug-in has beeninstalled. When you click on the AS/400 inOperations Navigator, this dialog willcome up asking to re-scan the AS/400.Rescanning for plug-ins allows OperationsNavigator to find out where the codeshould be plugged-in.If you cancel this scan, you can scan laterby going to the AS/400 Properties:Right click on the system and choosePropertiesClick on the Plug-ins tab and click on theRescan buttonIBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Starting the AS/400 Setup WizardOperations Navigator: Add Network Stations to AS/400IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardPTF checkChecks to verify that therequired PTFs areinstalled on the AS/400.The screen is not shownif all of the PTFs are onthe AS/400The user can print thelist of PTFs needed ontheir PC printer.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardWelcomeIncludes a PlanningForm button to list all ofthe information requiredto complete the wizard.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardPlanning FormHelps the user figure out whatthe values are for theinformation required by thewizard.Provides a table for the userto fill out ahead of time.The user can print theplanning form on their PCprinter.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardInitial TCP/IP Setup: host and domain nameOnly presented if TCP/IPhas never been set up.Only presented ifconnected throughOperations Console.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardInitial TCP/IP Setup: DNS serversOnly presented if TCP/IPhas never been set up.Only presented ifconnected throughOperations Console.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardSpecifying the range of Network StationsThis range is used todetermine the TCP/IPinterface and to buildDHCP subnet.It should include anaddress for the TCP/IPinterface if connectingdirectly to the AS/400.The user can Browse tosee what the validranges are for existingTCP/IP interfaces andDHCP subnets.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardBrowsing therange of NetworkStationsThe user can Browse tosee what the valid rangesare for existing TCP/IPinterfaces and DHCPsubnets.The selected range willbe copied to the panelthat specifies the rangeof Network Stations.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardSpecifying how the Network Stations are connected to AS/400Determines whether aTCP/IP interface isneeded or not.Through router: thewizard does not ask anyquestions aboutcreating a TCP/IPinterface. The nextpanel would be to selectthe Start-up method. Ifthe user selects DHCP,the Router option isrequired.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardTCP/IP Configuration TypeOnly configures TCP/IPfor Ethernet or TokenRing, not Twinax.If one type is notavailable on the AS/400,it is grayed out (asToken Ring is in thisexample).IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardTCP/IP Configuration: LineLists all of the linesavailable for the TCP/IPConfiguration Typepreviously specified.If there aren't any linesalready configured, thispanel is skipped and theuser creates a line.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardTCP/IP Configuration: New LineThe information forcreating a line is spreadacross two panels. Theprotocol and the speedare on a different panel.The user only specifiessome of the basic lineconfigurationparameters.If the wizard detects thatthe hardware is anIntegrated NetfinityServer, the checkboxgets checked.Otherwise, the usermust check it.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardTCP/IP Configuration: New LineThe information forcreating a line is spreadacross two panels.The user only specifiessome of the basic lineconfigurationparameters.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardTCP/IP Configuration: New Line on Integrated Netfinity ServerThis panel only appearsif the hardware for theline was an IntegratedNetfinity Server (thecheckbox was checked).This panel will createthe associated NWSDfor the IntegratedNetfinity Server.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardTCP/IP Configuration: InterfaceThe user only specifiessome of the basicinterface configurationparameters.The wizard fills in the IPaddress by default usingthe 1st address in theaddress rangepreviously specified bythe user.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients

Using the AS/400 Setup WizardTCP/IP Configuration: GatewaysThe user can addgateways by typing theIP address of thegateway in the edit fieldand clicking the Addbutton.IBM Network Station Family of Thin Clients
