Job logs for ended jobs, where the job log is in a spooled file, are easy to search on the green screen. When viewing the spooled job log, you simply enter your search text in the find field and press F16. In addition, you can use F14 to limit the columns in which your search is performed, then press F16 to search.
However, when using the green screen, there is no find field when viewing the job log of an active job. Jobs with pending job logs have a similar problem.

You can access the Integrated File System (IFS) using either the Navigator for i web console or Access Client Solutions (ACS). ACS added support to work with the IFS back in October 2016. There are differences between the capabilities; which interface you use will depend upon what you want to accomplish.

There’s a handy (but somewhat hidden) feature that allows you to save customizations made to your 5250 session configurations. It also allows you to have those customizations be the default settings for any new sessions.

I’ve been using tabbed sessions in the ACS 5250 emulator for a long time now. I really like the tab feature; tabs along with watermarks made it easy to identify which system I am logged in to. With a bit of configuration, you can make it easy to identify the active tab as well as customize the appearance of inactive tabs.

You should already be familiar with the fact that you can launch Navigator for i from Access Client Solutions (ACS). But did you know that there are now functions, that when requested from Navigator for i, are executed with ACS?
