What is the reason for such a once-in-a-year need ? Whatever functions in Heritage Navigator should also be available in the new one. There may be an alternative way if you explain your motive for such a need.
To access the heritage Navigator for i, first you run WRKACTJOB SBS(QHTTPSVR) to make sure the subsystem is up and running ADMINn jobs that includes ADMIN2. ADMIN2 job no longer starts with the subsystem if you have very recent relevant PTF applied. If the subsystem is not up, you start it by STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN).
Now that you indicate all ADMINn are running but no ADMIN2, you enable (and disable when it is no longer needed) ADMIN2 by following the instruction in this Technote : IBM Navigator for i - Heritage Version

By "access", what detailed operations do you need to perform ? Without knowing your details, you can access IFS from 5250 session with WRKLNK command or use IFS function in the New Navigator for i GUI or QShell interface if you are familiar with UNIX shell. Even FTP gives you basic IFS file manipulation: Using FTP with IFS files
Right action is better than knowledge; but in order to do what is right, we must know what is right.

Subject: starting ADMIN2 in QHTTPSVRR by itself
I still need to use iNavigator Heritage Edition(about once a year). I need to access the IFS without ACS.
Does anyone know what else starts with this job? Also, can it be started by itself and how is that done? I'm already running the other ADIMIN's 1,3,4,5.
Or is there another way to access the IFS folders, I'm not inclined to want to map a network drive if I can avoid it, for mostly security reasons.
