1. Remote Access of OS2 from W2K laptop
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
I need to access our Intermec server (OS2) to perform a reboot every Sunday night...otherwise, I have to drive 30 minutes to perform a 2min. reboot. Does anybody know of any software that will enable me to remote access my OS2 server from a W2K laptop? Thanks a Million!

Well, I have used both IBMs Desktop On Call or NetOp solutions.

Both works really great, the good thing about IBM Desktop On Call is that there is no need for client software to login. DOC is a services that you set up on the server and you will be able to login from where ever you are and have access to connection internet.

There is also a VNC server under development. It's at http://os2.in.ru/download/eros2/pmvnc-pre3.zip . I haven't tried it, but, have seen some good reports.

Other ways include:
- Using a scheduler and a shutdown program to do it automatically
- Telnet or similar
- If it runs a web-server, getting that to run a command like shutdown isn't very hard. Security is the biggest issue.

And for my curiosity, what's an "Intermec server"? I helped write a system that used Intermec handheld scanners a few years ago, but, I don't remember seeing anything OS/2 related from them. Is it the same company, or something completely different?

Hi David,
Our Intermec OS2 server runs DCS 300 v1.6 software that connects our Intermec products to our LAN. The DCS300 software collects RF data from our Intermec hardware and sends it down the pipe to our Warehouse Management Server where the data is then updated.
Also...Thanks for your help in resolving my remote access issue. We are currently looking into the scheduler as an answer to this dilemma. Thanks, Will

Hi Kim,
Thanks so much for taking the time to assist me on my Remote Access problems with OS2. The IBM Desktop On Call worked out great. The weekends are mine again (well, at least for now) Thanks again...you're the Best! Resp, Will
