Before You Install

  1. Confirm that the OS/400 is version V5R3 or above.
  2. Run WRKLIB WINSPOOL to confirm that you do not already have a copy of the WINSPOOL library on your iSeries. If it returns no results, continue to step 3. If it does return results, WINSPOOL has been installed on your iSeries 
    in the past; ask your iSeries administrator whether to upgrade or clear the library and reinstall.
  3. Make sure that:
    1. FTP is running on the iSeries LPAR where you are installing WINSPOOL.
    2. Your account has the required system credentials.
      Note: If your account does not have the required system credentials, use QSECOFR or another account with *ALLOBJ special authority.
  4. On the FTP server, make sure that NAMEFMT is set to 1, not 0.
    Note: NAMEFMT is set to 1 on most FTP servers.
  5. If you are using FTP exit programs, create an exception or temporarily disable them during this installation.
  6. Make sure that your WINSPOOL license matches the iSeries serial, model, and LPAR numbers. If you do not have a license or do not know if your license matches, view our licensing help or contact RJS Software Technical Support.
  7. On a Windows system on the same network as the iSeries, download the WINSPOOL FTP installer.
  8. Execute winspool.exe.

Installing

  1. Specify the IP address of the LPAR you wish to install to, along with the User and Password of the security officer account you wish to use for performing the install.
  2. Click on Step 1-Connect to IBM i, and click on each button in sequence, waiting for each operation to complete before proceeding to the next. Informational messages will display at the bottom, as will errors messages, if any errors occur.
