Abstract

The IBM DOS LAN Requester automatically connects a given user to an administrator-created list of log-on assignments when that user logs on to the network. Currently, if a user logs on to a network under Windows these logon assignments do not get done automatically and the user must set up access to any network resources on their own.

Method to Allow a Windows User to be Connected to OS/2 Network Server Resources Automatically at Log on to the Network

       The IBM DOS LAN Requester automatically connects a given
user to an administrator-created list of log-on assignments when that
user logs on to the network. Currently, if a user logs on to a
network under Windows these logon assignments do not get done
automatically and the user must set up access to any network
resources on their own.

      By making modifications to enable the DOS LAN Requester (DLR)
code that handles the automatic connecting of log-on assignments to
run under Windows, it is now possible for a user using DOS LAN
Requester Windows to automatically connect to an
administrator-created list of log-on assignments.  The current DLR
code was modified to run under Windows and was packaged in a separate
Dynamic Link Library (DLL) so that the code which handles the
automatic connection of log-on assignments could be executed when a
user logs on to a network using DOS LAN Requester Windows.

      This enables the user to achieve the same level of
functionality when they log on under DOS LAN Requester Windows that
they have when logging on using the current DOS LAN Requester.  Since
the log-on assignments are handled automatically, a user will have
access to network resources as soon as they log on and they will not
have to spend unnecessary time reconnecting to network resources
every time they log on.
