This function allows access methods to be used by users to access other computers, not just AS/400's. Once the access method has been set up, the user can use the utility to display a list of remote systems to select. When selected, the utility will use the information set up to process the request to the remote system selected.
The utility was initially designed for AS/400's, so access can be set up to a remote system, which, when selected, can take the user to the remote system and automatically sign them on. This can be used, so a user can take a menu option which signs them on at a remote system, displaying another menu. (Note the remote system must allow automatic sign on).
All passwords entered for automatic sign on are encrypted within the function.
The utility now has the ability to use other methods of access like TCP/IP. This means that if TCP/IP has been set up, users can select access to other non-AS/400 computers.
