According to the documentation (Client Access Family) the way to run a PC
command from an AS/400 session is STRPCCMD for DOS, Windows 3.1 and OS/2.
For Windows 95/NT one should use RUNRMTCMD. However, on my PC (Windows 95,
twinax, NetSoft router, CA V3R1M2, OS/400 V3R2) STRPCCMD does work but
RUNRMTCMD does not.
For RUNRMTCMD the daemon program AREXECDN.EXE should be running on the PC.
This has been installed on the PC, but when I start it, it does not seem to
do anything. No information, no process running. When I try RUNRMTCMD from
an AS/400 session, the job log says that the remote system 'did not
recognize the transaction program' (quoting from memory).
Any ideas why STRPCCMD appears to be unsupported? Will it suddenly vanish
in a future release? Will it not work with TCP/IP (not with V3R1M2 anyway;
the session is not recognized as a PC session)?
Any ideas how I could get RUNRMTCMD to work?
