Chapter 2. Setting up iSeries Access for Web 21
Refer to Table 2-4 on page 13 or Table 2-5 on page 14 for a list of the required software
products for iSeries Access for Web for System A. You must have installed all required
software licensed program products on this system. In addition, System A requires you to
configure an additional Web application server instance for each additional iSeries server to
be accessed using iSeries Access for Web.
The additional systems represented as System B, System C, and System D do not require a
Web application server instance to be installed. However, these systems do require you to
install the following licensed programs:
iSeries Access Family (5722-XW1)
iSeries Access for Web V5R2 (5722-XH2)
Each additional system requires iSeries Access Family to provide the licensing component to
allow iSeries Access for Web connections and iSeries Access for Web V5R2 to control the
individual session functions.
Each instance of the Web application server is required to be configured for one target
system. The configuration setting that controls the target system for the instance is the
definition in the webaccess.properties file.
You can find the webaccess.properties file in the IFS directory
The path depends on the unique values configured on an individual server:
: The name of the application server (for example, was40adv)
: The unique name for the instance of the application server (for example,
You can edit the content of the webaccess.properties file to configure the application server
instance to connect to the target system. Figure 2-3 shows an example of the content of the
webaccess.properties file with the parameter that needs to be included.
Figure 2-3 Example webaccess.properties file
The webaccess.properties file is edited by adding a realm statement to the file. Without this
statement, the iSeries Access for Web session is directed to the local system. The format of
the realm statement is shown here:
is the fully qualified domain name configured in the TCP/IP setup for
the desired target system. For example, it may be
