LAN Server/400 A Guide to Using the AS/400 as a File Server

An IBM Redbooks publication


This document is unique in its detailed coverage of the LAN
Server/400 product and the associated hardware, the File Server
I/O Processor. It is a guide to installing, configuring and operating
LAN Server/400 migrating from other environments (particularly
from OS/2 LAN Server 3.0), comparing the functions and performance
of LAN Server/400 with other LAN serving products and helping you
to get the best out of LAN Server/400.

This document has been written with LAN administrators and AS/400
administrators in mind, but will also be useful if you are planning
a LAN Server/400 installation or if you want to know more about how
LAN Server/400 works and coexists with other products.

Some knowledge of AS/400 and local area networks is assumed, although
many of the terms and concepts are explained for the benefit of those
more familiar with other platforms.
