IBM i Access Client Solutions is the newest member of the IBM i Access family. It provides a Java based, platform-independent interface that runs on most operating systems that support Java, including Linux, Mac, and Windows™.

IBM i Access Client Solutions consolidates the most commonly used tasks for managing your IBM i into one simplified location.

The latest version of IBM i Access Client Solutions is available to customers with an IBM i software maintenance contract. If you have been using the technology preview, you will need to obtain and deploy the latest version from Entitled Software Support (ESS) in order to maintain uninterrupted connectivity to your IBM i. It can be downloaded from the Entitled Software Support (ESS) website under 5761-SS1 (feature codes 5817, 5818, 5819) or 5770-SS1 (feature codes 5817, 5818, or 5819). Using the hide/show option on the ESS website will allow you to download just the specific part(s) needed.

Customers requiring physical media can acquire it by ordering refresh feature 6288 for 5761-SS1 or 5770-SS1. The optional packages for Windows and Linux are not available on physical media.
