The following steps will help you determine if Webulator/400 has been configured properly for access. The intention of the list is to check the basic areas of access and should not be considered to be a comprehensive set of tests. Please note that you must have followed the steps in the Initial Webulator/400 Setup section for these tests to be valid.
In order to perform the following tests, either Web Server/400 or Commerce Server/400 must be started on the AS/400 and a Web browser must be running on a workstation connected to the AS/400 using TCP/IP.
The value of the signon method will determine what you will see when you successfully
access a Webulator/400 URL. If the signon method is
SCREEN, you will
receive a standard AS/400 signon screen. If the method is
you will receive a browser window asking for your user id and password. If the method is
USER, you will see the first screen for that AS/400 user profile. Please note
that if the method is
DISABLED, you will receive an error message when
you try to access that URL.
your.system.name is your AS/400 system's TCP/IP host name or IP address.
/WblAliasName is an alias whose
*WEBULATOR. You can view all of your
current aliases by running the WRKWWWALS command.
For example, assume that your
www.xyz.com and your
*Webulator alias name is
/WWW5250/. The name of your Webulator/400 root URL would be
/*META/WEBULATOR/, you can ignore all entries that do not meet this criteria. For example, assume that you have the following Webulator/400 directory entries:
The first entry is the Webulator/400 root directory and the second directory is a child off the
root directory. In order to determine the name of the URL to access this child directory,
you need to strip off the Webulator/400 root component from the directory name. This leaves
us with the name of the child directory entry (
STATUS/). You must
append the name of the child directory entry to the URL of the Webulator/400 root to get
the correct URL for the child directory entry. Assuming that the root directory URL is
http://www.xyz.com/WWW5250/, the URL for the child would be
