1. Go to My Computer and click Tools, then select Map Network Drive.
2. Select any drive Letter that in not in use. In the folder section you would put \\systemname\directory you would like access to, for example: \\PROD\TESTING.
3. You will be prompted for your user ID, which is your domain user ID (for example, Vision\AS400 Login ID), and your passoword, which is your i5/OS login password.

You will now have access to folders and files in this portion of the IFS. Going forward, all you need to do is go to My Computer and click on your mapped drive.
