I'm looking for an application (or heck, even a cheap registry patch!)
that will allow a laptop to switch between wired and wireless
connections automatically, preferring wired Ethernet of course. I
know that IBM Access Connections is such an application that does it
for IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad's, but I'm looking for something more generic
for use on any laptop with Windows XP.
Does such an animal exist?
XP should already be able to do this automatically. Go to the Network
Connections folder. Select 'Advanced' from the menu bar, 'Advanced
Settings'. The 'Adaptors and Bindings tab will show a connections window
with the priority for the connections.
The higher in the list, the higher the priority. I have my wired
connections up top and my wireless connection below.
Hopefully this is what you are looking for.

I am trying to map a keyboard for a user that needs the enter key on
the numeric key pad to be the actual enter key and not the field exit
key. If the num luck key is not in use the keyboard mapping works,
but if the user turns on the num lock to use the numeric key pad the
enter key is not working as an enter key. Any suggestions on
correcting this issue for the user.
Just map the "Shift" - <numeric keypad enter> to <enter> as well,
just like you already did for the base.

I am working on a project where I need to connect some Windows 2000
(SP3) servers to an IBM AS/400 database. I'm using IBM's Client Access
OLE DB driver (V5R2 with SI08894 patch installed) on each server. The
first serve is dual-processor, running SQL Server 2000 (SP3), and I
have a DTS package that is intended to copy data from the AS/400 to
some SQL Server tables. Problems:
1. When setting up the connection in the DTS package, saving the
AS/400 connection password with the package is problematic. The Blank
Password checkbox in the connection properties won't stay unchecked,
and if I type in a password, sometimes when I close the connection
properties it is saved and sometimes it is not. Of course, if it is
not, then the DTS package fails when it is scheduled to run
2. When I do get a DTS package to execute, it seems that IBM's OLE
driver only allows a single connection to the AS/400. I say this
because only one data transformation task will run at a time. Using a
previous AS/400 OLE driver, I would see at least two data
transfformation tasks operating in parallel. I have installed the
registry key that IBM says is needed to enable connection pooling in
V5R2, but don't know of any tools that let me see what is really going
on with OLE connections. Is there some magic registry entry (or file
to edit) that sets the maximum number of connections? I know this is
supposed to be automatic, but it appears that only one connection is
being open...Microsoft uses IBM AS400's for development.
Not well known but Microsoft uses IBM AS400 machines with the Windows
server card option to develop programs. This option is really a PC on
a card but offers significant advantages over a stand alone pc in that
it can support virtual sessions of Windows each of which can be
rebooted as required without bringing down the other seesions or worse
the rest of the machine. Microsoft is a huge IBM AS400 customer. Most
people assume developers are using PC's sitting next to their work

MS developers are using Win 2k3 and Win 2k8 servers as development
machines too and not PC(s), with VMware.

Hi, I'm trying to write a simple "helloworld" web service
for both the server and client in IBM WebSphere Application
I'm having particular trouble with developing clients

1) Any ideas what that click/spinning could be?
2) If I did experience a powersurge what part(s) would I most likely
need to replace?
3) If I replace the system board would the fix the problem and are
there any tests that I would be able to run to see what the problem
might be? Electrical tests or any other tests.

Using IBM Personal communications 5250 emulator version 5.5, on XP Pro, 4
mth old Dell.
I have mapped ctrl-c and ctrl-v to cut and paste respectively. Occasionally,
I do a lot of cut-paste operations between the 5250 session and excel.
This works OK for a while. But, after 10 minutes or so of cutting pasting
between excel/5250, suddenly the system emits an error beep when I mark the
text and try to use CTRL-C to copy. And, i cannot copy / paste until I close
the emulator, and restart.
This is very annoying...anyone know how to fix this one? By the way, the
same problem occurs on my desktop, and my laptop so I think this could be
related to the 5250 software.
...Using AIX 4.3 as a terminal for accessing IBM 7043
I would appreciate help on a problem if someone has the time.
I am trying to use my IBM 7043-150 running AIX 4.3.3 as a terminal to
access my IBM 7011-25E running AIX 3.2.55. I have them connected via
a laplink cable from S1 to S1.
I configured the 7043 serial port using "smit tty" and set it as
follows using the default configuration:
tty - tty0
tty type - tty
tty interface - rs232
description - asynch terminal
status - available
location - 01-S1-00-00
Parent adapter - sa0
Port number - 0
login - disable
baud - 9600
parity - none
bits - 8
stop bits - 1
time - 0
terminal type - vt320
I chose vt320 because I've been using TeraTerm on a Vista laptop to
connect to the 7011 and wanted to have the control of known results.
I'm interested in using the 7043 because I have a question about
whether the USB<->serial port converter I'm using might be causing an
issue where the system hangs after a certain point on boot.
The problem is that when I run "getty /dev/tty0" I get nothing.
I have done all of the above as I thought that was the best way to get
a terminal going on my stock 4.3.3 install. If I am wrong, please set

I've got a dead C64 that I wanted to adapt over to a mini-itx IBM mobo
and use VICE on it. I'd like to use the original C64 keyboard with
the new PC; however that would require a custom hardware adapter.
One person on mini-itx.com adapted an old SX-64 in this manner and
uses the original keyboard. He supposedly developed just such an
adapter, and promised to make the hardware details available. Like so
many other "orphaned" Internet projects, he appears to have lost
interest and no longer shows that info on his web pages. Won't answer
email inquiries, either.

I am running a web app on WAS 5.0 on Linux connecting to iSeries V5R2 for
DB2 access using the tool box driver. Most of the time this works fine but
occasionally I get the stuff listed below. When this happens the app just
crashes out. Its weird because this happens on pages that where running fine
5 minutes ago. It appears like my connections are going stale but my app
thinks they are fine. There is no firewall between the two boxes so I cant
blame it on the firewall killing the connection. Has anyone seen this before
or am I totally off on the wrong track. Any help would be most appreciated.
BTW It does not seem to happen when running on WAS 5.0 on the iseries but
then its on the same machine and the drivers local.

It frightens me that IBM is pushing for more Linux. They have gone to
the point of releasing some of their software patents to help spark the
growth of Linux. I for one shudder at the fact that some day companies
like IBM may make a power play for the control of Linux software
development. It will not be in ownership rights, because of the GPL.
However, if the corporations of the world start "needing" open source,
they will try to control and steer its development by offering large
"donations" to get what they are depending on. If open source
developers accept these "gifts," they will become dependent on the
If this hypothetical thought turns out to be true, would this spoil the
free software notion of open source and make Linux as proprietary as
any other commercial OS? In my hypothetical future of Linux and IBM,
would we have IBM sponsered distributions of Linux, for instance?
Would IBM be next to try to rule the world with their "IBM Linux" just
as MS is trying to rule the desktop with Windows? Think about it. IBM
has a lot of money to throw around. They could make "IBM Linux" way
more popular than Red Hat with that kind of money. Maybe even make it
as popular as Windows?? They'll hold the dough while Linux developers
try to get in on a piece of the action.

...IBM URLs (http://www.ibm.com/ vs. http://www-306.ibm.com/)
one general thing to note when quoting IBM URLs like the following:
> Check out http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data/informix/ids/support/
please leave out the "-###" part of the URL and instead
quote it like this:
The "-###" means that the page is provided by a particular host,
to which an original HTTP request without such a "-###" has
been routed automatically.
Usually, the routing will be stable, i.e. a URL with "-###" will
normally work. However, if that particular machine is down, then
a URL with the "-###" may not work.
But a URL without "-###" will still work, because the request
will then be routed to a different machine.
Therefore at best leave out that "-###" when quoting such URLs.
Otherwise, if such a URL one day does not work, remember that you
can take away the "-###" part and it then should work.
This is a general note, not to pick on any individual e-mail
contributor ... only this e-mail was a good example.
Besides, there are many people within IBM who don't understand
the concept behind this and therefore often just do cut&paste
of such URLs into documents, presentations, etc.
But since this is a technical audience, I thought it may well
