Resolving the problem
This document provides information on how to obtain the IBM i Access Client Solutions Product.
As of October 2015, the preferred method of obtaining the platform independent core Java client is to go to the IBM i Access Client Solutions web site:
From there, click on the link to Download IBM i Access Client Solutions base package and sign on with an registered IBM ID, which would be the same ID used to log into the IBM Fix Central web site. After signing on, the IBM i Access Client Solutions download site will show the account's Business Contact Information and Privacy settings. Scrolling down the IBM i Access Client Solutions license should be viewed and then you should check the option for I agree and select the I confirm button.
The IBM i Access Client Solutions IBMiAccess_v1r1.zip file along with the Readme, Quick Start Guide, and Getting Started documentation are presented to download. By default, the downloads are offered using the Download Director tool. If there are problems with that, you should select the tab to Download using http, and try that as a more reliable alternative.
The client is still available from the IBM Entitled System Support (ESS) web site, and this is the only location to obtain the IBM i Access Client Solutions Windows Application Package and IBM i Access Client Solutions Linux Application Package. The following discusses obtaining the client from the IBM ESS web site.
o You must be entitled to V6R1 or above.
o V5R4 entitled customers will not be able to obtain the GA version of Access Client Solutions unless they already have a processed order for V6R1 or above.
