Configuring an i5/OS and OS/400 proxy server

To use a proxy server, you must enable the proxy server on the Z and I Emulator for Web server. One advantage of using a proxy server is that only one port is opened through the firewall when transferring files to an iSeries system. All the data flows through the specified configured port. The default port is 3470. When a proxy server is not enabled, multiple ports are used.

To configure an i5/OS and OS/400 proxy server:

  1. Click Services in the Administration window.
  2. Select OS/400 Proxy Server.
  3. Click Yes to enable a proxy server.
  4. Enter a server port and a maximum number of connections.
  5. Click Apply.
