The HTTP Servers are delivered as part of the licensed program product 5722DG1. Use the command GO LICPGM and take option 10 to review the list of installed products. After verifying that you have the HTTP Server installed, use the command STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMN) to launch the browser-based HTTP administration tool. To use the Admin Server, open a browser such as Internet Explorer and change the address to http://www.your-i5-ip-address:2001. A log-in prompt appears and requires a user profile with security officer privileges. Once you log in, the main admin page shown in Figure 31.1 appears.
