Add properties to New Navigator > TCP/IP Servers

Under the old nav, if you right clicked on a TCP/IP server you got the option to start/stop, server jobs and view the properties for that particular server. Today we have those options but no properties. We will need that moved over before the old nav goes away.

    The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a HIGH priority requirement that is important to address.

    Background: The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

    To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at

    Thanks for your input. IBM will use this Idea as input to planning, but no commitment is made or implied. This Idea will be updated in the future if IBM implements it. IBM will use votes and comments from others in the community to help prioritize this Idea.

    FTP and all of the properties under it. (General, mappings, initial format)

    Telnet: (Ideally all of the properties under it. ) However, the top would be. (General, system signon, remote signon, timeout)

    IBM i netservers > Add subsystem under properties and also add the configuration wizard.

    IBM would like more specifics to further assess your Idea. There are many servers and properties functions. Are there some you could mention that would be at the top of your list? Provide as much detail as you can for which servers and functions you use more often than others.
