Client Access is DEAD – get over it!

How To Download IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS) 1

Client Access was much reviled, much loved and mucho mucho confusing for users of AS/400, iSeries and the newer IBM i Power Systems.

As Client Access evolved over the years, it got rebranded as IBM i Access with new releases of the operating system. Many people from the technical end of the spectrum just kept on calling it “Client Access” because all of old grey haired “400” users know what that is.

IBM i Access for Windows delivers TCP/IP connectivity to users running a variety of Microsoft® Windows® operating systems. IBM i Access for Windows offers an all-inclusive client solution for accessing and using resources from your Windows desktop. It includes 5250 emulation, access to DB2 Universal Database® (UDB) for IBM i through its Data Transfer, and utilizes IBM i NetServer for working with the IBM i Integrated File System and printers. It also has a variety of middleware for using and developing client applications to access IBM i resources; and Navigator for i, the i5/OS GUI, for administering your IBM i.

IBM does not plan to support IBM i Access for Windows on operating systems beyond Windows 8.1. The replacement product is IBM i Access Client Solutions

So now it’s finally officially retired.

Client Access is Dead, Long Live IBM i Access Client Solutions

IBM have never had any idea about how to name things, what a stupid name. Why not just call it “IBM i Navigator” or something simple? *sigh* Anyway, I’m not going to get distracted by moaning about naming conventions, so, lets go and download our very own copy of IBM i ACS from IBM

Lets meet the new kid on on the block:
