Description

New for Personal Communications V5.8

Security enhancements

  • Microsoft Crypto API (MSCAPI) support enables the use of the MSCAPI security package for secure Telnet sessions.
  • Certificate Migration utility enables you to migrate certificates stored in the Certificate Management utility for use with the MSCAPI support.
  • Client certificate key usage option enables users to specify which key usage and extended key usage values are required for a client certificate in a client authentication session.
  • Server authentication enables the session to authenticate the server by matching the server name to the host or server certificate name.
  • Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) mode feature, when enabled, ensures that only FIPS-approved ciphers are used in a secure connection.

Primary Interop assemblies (PIA) for .NET: Automation objects exposed by Personal Communications (PCOMM) can now be used by applications written in any language targeting the .NET framework. Managed .NET applications can program PCOMM by using the PIA, which wraps the automation objects provided with the product.

IPv6 Support for Enterprise Extender (EE): Support for EE is now enabled for IPv6 host name support for the EEDLC attachment. You can specify a host name when using either IPv4 or IPv6 addressing. This support is only available on Windows XP (SP1, or later) and Windows 2003.

5250 Printer Association: PCOMM supports the new 5250 Printer Association introduced in i5/OS V5R3. This feature allows dynamic association of a 5250 printer device to a 5250 display session. The 5250 client (PCOMM) can ask the iSeries host to associate a printer device when it requests a display LU name.

TN3270E connection resolution: PCOMM supports the TN3270E contention state resolution function described in the IETF TN3270E Functional Extensions Internet-Draft document. This function allows the 3270 host to indicate to the client that the host has finished updating the application screen.

Customize print session window appearance: For 3270 and 5250 printer sessions, you can customize the appearance of the session window to display printer session status and configuration information such as host connection status, printer setup, and page setup details. You can also specify a wallpaper image for the session window.

iSeries Data Transfer Utility long password support: The Data Transfer Utility, for 5250 only, now supports 128-character, case-sensitive profile passwords. It also supports the four QPWDLVL password levels.

Bidirectional enhancements

  • The proper national session codepages, keyboard, and data transfer code page settings are now set by default according to system locale.
  • Trace facility is now available for bidirectional-specific components.
  • All fonts installed on a system are now available for Print Screen and Printer session.
  • Display mode in a VT session with the Hebrew codepage can be changed among visual and logical without session restart.
  • File transfer is now available in both logical and visual modes.

New for Host On-Demand V9.0

Productivity

Database integration and enhancements: Recognizing the need to integrate data stored in a database with data for a host application, emulator sessions can now perform SQL queries and upload files to a database. You can extract data from queries and use it within a macro, write the data to a file to be used with another application, or copy the data to the clipboard.

Other database enhancements include:

  • Ability to store query results in XML format to provide better support for data exchange
  • Improved compatibility with newer versions of Microsoft Excel
  • Support for the administrator or user to filter tables to improve performance and limit user access to tables.

Multiple print screens: For 3270 sessions, you can now queue print jobs so that the user can collect them and send them to the printer at one time. When using Java 2, you can review and change the print collection before processing. Also, you can choose to use the Java print capabilities or expanded print capabilities such as writing to a PDF file or using printer definition tables that were formerly only available to host print sessions.

Macro enhancements: Continuing to expand the macro programming language, Host On-Demand includes these new functions:

  • New actions for database access for database integration
  • Ability to pass parameters into a macro to make macros even more dynamic
  • Ability to specify prompt actions that can be marked as required
  • Addition of library functions for common tasks such as searching for strings and formatting strings and numbers

In addition, because users often use more than one host session, you can now record and replay macros that interact with more than one session. For example, you can extract data from an inventory system running on one host and pass that data to a billing system running on a different host. Such extremely powerful macros can simplify repetitive tasks.

VT enhancements: To strengthen emulator support for VT hosts, Host On-Demand offers the following new productivity enhancements for VT sessions:

  • Menu option to copy entire history window and ability to log the history window to a file
  • Support for VT 420 command set
  • VT font improvements
  • Support for ANSI colors

Sharing and reusing transfer lists and SQL queries: Administrators and users can now share and reuse host file transfer lists, FTP transfer lists, and SQL queries between sessions. Administrators no longer need to reconfigure these objects for each individual session or HTML file, and users can share a single object across multiple sessions.

ZipPrint enhancements: With ZipPrint you can now cancel a print job, choose to print or not print the bottom line for the last page, and automate a way to specify key words, a top string, and a bottom string.

Security

TLS/SSL support for Linux Redirector: While previous versions of Host On-Demand provided secure connections to the Host On-Demand Redirector for Windows and AIX® servers, Host On-Demand V9 extends TLS/SSL support to Linux Intel™ and zSeries Linux platforms. System administrators can consolidate more function on one platform.

Support for Linux smart card: Linux clients on 32-bit Intel platforms can now use smart cards to authenticate the client to the host, providing the same function that was previously available only to Windows clients.

Web Express Logon enhancements: Web Express Logon, which enables users to access host systems and host applications without having to provide a user ID and password, now supports WebSphere Portal environments as well as 3270 environments that use client certificates for user authentication. In WebSphere Portal environments, you can configure Web Express Logon to use the Portal Server ID to retrieve the host credentials from the Portal Servers Credential Vault or from some other Host Credential Mapper database such as WebSphere DB2®. In 3270 application environments that use client certificates, you can configure Web Express Logon to automate the logon process using the certificates. This type of Web Express Logon is called Certificate-based Web Express Logon. Unlike Certificate Express Logon (formerly known as Express Logon Feature, or ELF), it does not require an Express Logon-enabled TN3270 server.

Hiding information from end users: To protect your host system better, you can now hide certain information that would normally be visible to your users, such as the destination address and port number.

SSH enhancements: To provide faster, more secure protection for your sensitive data, Host On-Demand now supports the Advanced Encryption Standard encryption algorithm, the latest data encryption standard developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. In addition, Host On-Demand now supports Keyboard-Interactive authentication to allow you to customize SSH server authentication using Pluggable Authentication Module plug-ins.

FIPS mode: This feature, when enabled, ensures that only FIPS-approved ciphers are used in a secure connection. The following Host On-Demand functions can operate in FIPS mode:

  • Redirector
  • Telnet connection from client to host
  • SSH connection to host (with the use of a FIPS-compliant Java 2 Java Runtime Environment (JRE))
  • iSeries Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) connection (with the use of a FIPS-compliant JRE)

FIPS mode is not available when running automating 3270 applications using the Web Express Logon function.

Technology

Redirector IPv6 support: To accommodate the increasing acceptance of Internet Protocol Version  6 (IPv6), the Host On-Demand Redirector supports IPv6 on Linux, AIX, Solaris, and some Windows platforms.

Host On-Demand portlet improvements: To integrate with WebSphere Portal more seamlessly, Host On-Demand V9 portlets offer the following improvements:

  • Support for multiple Host On-Demand portlets on a page
  • Ability to save preferences to Portal Server to allow for roaming
  • GUI-based option to hide the Host On-Demand desktop (making only the emulator session visible)
  • Better integration with other portlets on the page; for example, the ability to create a common look and feel by using the same font types and foreground and background colors

Usability

Web Server Independence: To eliminate the Web server as the single point of failure for users when accessing their host systems, Host On-Demand now offers Web Server Independence, which enables the Web Start client and the cached client to operate even when the Web server is unavailable. With this feature, files are retrieved from the Web server when the server is available and then stored locally. If the Web server becomes unavailable, users can use these files to access their host systems.

Keyboard remap enhancements: For clients with Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.4, or later, the key remap function now includes independent mappings for keys that are defined in more than one location on the keyboard; for example, the right and left Control keys and the Enter key on the main keyboard and the numeric keypad. These enhancements offer increased flexibility to users who want duplicate keys to behave independently.

Ready-to-use emulator clients: Host On-Demand provides a sample Deployment Wizard-generated HTML file that you can install to create a session definition to a 3270, 5250, VT, and FTP host. Users provide the correct destination address and any other connection-related properties to connect to their host system. This HTML sample file is useful as a quick demonstration of a working Host On-Demand emulator session or when you need to give users immediate access to host data.

z/OS® installation improvements: To allow you to customize the z/OS installation directory more easily, Host On-Demand now provides a single shell script that specifies the install directory. Because all other Host On-Demand shell scripts extract the installation directory from this one script, you no longer have to customize each shell script individually.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

Most common functions of Personal Communications:

  • Support interfaces used by screen readers and magnifiers
  • Can be operated using only the keyboard
  • Support customization of display attributes such as color, contrast, and font size
  • Communicate all information independently of color
  • Allow the user to take as much time as needed to respond

Product positioning

Host Access Client Package for Multiplatforms, V5 offers a migration path from traditional emulation to Web browser-based emulation. It focuses on TN5250, TN3270E, VT52/100/220/420, and CICS® applications support.

Within the WebSphere Host Integration Solution, WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services (HATS) also addresses this market. It is a server-side solution that runs on either the WebSphere Application Server or the WebSphere Portal Server. HATS makes your 3270 and 5250 applications available through the most popular Web browsers, while converting your host screens to a Web-like look and feel. HATS provides a zero-footprint Web-to-host solution. The only software needed on the client is a Web browser.

Personal Communications

Personal Communications is a key client component of the IBM Host Integration portfolio for LAN, WAN, and remote access and connectivity. Personal Communications provides access to applications and data whether residing on mid-range or enterprise servers. Additionally, it can give you the optimal platform for traditional access to data and applications on the host and includes new tools to help transform your traditional business into an e-business.

Through the use of Enterprise Extender in Personal Communications, you can maintain the integrity of their SNA LU6.2/CPIC/APPC applications over IP. This capability is an IBM exclusive, both on desktops and in the communications servers that provide the gateway back into the SNA environment. You have the only solution that can solve the problem of transporting these SNA applications over an IP network.

WebSphere Host On-Demand

WebSphere Host On-Demand is intended for clients who want to provide secure, cost-effective host access to users in intranet- and extranet-based environments. Businesses can extend the reach of their host applications and data to new users, including business partners, suppliers, and sales personnel.

Host On-Demand gives users security-enhanced browser access to host applications and data, with Web browser-based emulation. With support for TN3270E, TN5250, VT52/100/220/420, and CICS applications included in a single package, users need to learn only one interface to reach key host data. Because Host On-Demand is Java-based, users in different operating environments get the same look and feel, and an identical feature set.

Host On-Demand is installed only on the Web server, and the Host On-Demand applet is downloaded via a Web URL to the user's Web browser. Code maintenance, updates, and configurations reside on the Web server. Users are automatically notified of updates. The Host On-Demand cached client can help reduce download and user idle time, help enhance productivity, and help save significant expense in product deployment and maintenance.

Host On-Demand can be installed on nearly any server platform to fit nearly any size organization or branch office. Host On-Demand is supported by your choice of platforms, ranging from Windows NT™, AIX, and Linux servers to iSeries and zSeries mainframes. The benefit extends to the desktop as well. Because the interface is Java-based, it is the same in every workstation environment, whether it be Windows, OS/2®, Linux, Apple Mac, or other supported workstation environments.

With a rich Java toolset, including Host Access Beans for Java and the API, you can enable customers to rapidly create custom e-business applications to achieve a competitive advantage. Because Host On-Demand is part of the WebSphere family, applications developed using the toolset can be incorporated into other WebSphere software projects, helping preserve your Host On-Demand investment and helping provide a quick start to the Web and e-business.

Host On-Demand is recommended for installations that require low-cost centralized deployment, easy, centralized administration, and support for a broad range of client and server platforms. Personal Communications is recommended for full-function emulation, more extensive APIs, and a wider range of protocols or connectivities, including APPN® and other SNA technologies.

Limitations: WebSphere Host On-Demand V9

  • Because terminal and printer devices require a specific language codepage to process data correctly, data between different language-dependent devices may not be completely compatible.
  • VT52, VT100, VT220, and VT420 emulation supports single-byte character set (SBCS) only.
  • The euro currency symbol is not supported in VT or CICS Transaction Gateway. To print the euro currency symbol in Host printing PDT mode, the printer must be enabled for the symbol. The print screen function or the Host print in Windows printer driver mode requires that the browser and underlying operating system be enabled for the euro currency symbol.
  • To use the Native Authentication feature, you must install Host On-Demand on the same machine that you want to authenticate against. Native Authentication is supported only on Windows NT, AIX, and zSeries platforms.
  • In a Java 2 client environment:
    • HOD.HTML cannot run some functions without modification.
    • With the Java 2 download client, a user cannot download a Host On-Demand client component that is not in the original preload list. Consequently, you must specify all the components that your users might require in the preload list.
  • In addition to the limitations for Java 2, the following cached client functions are not supported on an Apple Mac with OS X:
    • Upgrading the cached client in the background
    • Installing additional components after initial download
    • Controlling upgrades
    • Installing the cached client from CD
  • Note: You must use the Java Control Panel to remove the cached client. HODRemove.html is not supported on the Mac.
  • Beans and HACL applications developed using the Host Access Toolkit cannot use the FIPS-certified SSL code for the Telnet connection if the custom application is to be deployed in an Enterprise Application Archive (EAR) or Web Application Archive (WAR) file. For these environments, the non-FIPS-certified SSL jar must be used.
  • Host On-Demand V9 is not supported on Windows 95.

Personal Communications V5.8

  • VT Emulation supports SBCS only.
  • MCA communications adapters are not supported.
  • AnyNet® is not enabled for IPv6 addressing support. IPv6 addressing support is limited to Windows XP SP1, or later, and Windows 2003 operating platforms.
  • The SNA Node Configuration Preference support introduced in Personal Communications V5.7 is limited to use on the Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 2003 operating platforms.
  • Personal Communications V5.8 is not supported on Windows 95.
  • QEL/MU connectivity is no longer supported in Personal Communications V5.8.

Planning information

Personal Communications for Windows, V5.8 planning: Install and configure Personal Communications for Windows, V5.8.

Follow the installation instructions. Then use the online help for more detailed information about configuring Personal Communications for Windows to allow users to access host sessions.

Host On-Demand V9 planning: Install a Java Development Kit (JDK) (OS/400 only) and a Web Server.

Check the supported JDK and JVM, browser, Web Server, and servlet engine levels, as well as required disk space.

Choose a deployment strategy.

Host On-Demand provides three models for deploying configuration data to users: HTML-based, configuration server-based, and the combined model. Some models, if selected, will require you to configure the service manager port and optionally the configuration servlet.

Select the Service Manager port.

The default service manager port is 8999. If you want to change this value because it is already in use, you can do so during installation for Windows, AIX, OS/400, Solaris, HP-UX, and Linux. The port may also be changed after installation on all platforms.

Choose to use the configuration servlet.

During the Host On-Demand installation, you can choose to have the configuration servlet installed and configured on i5/OS, OS/400, Windows, AIX, Linux, Solaris, and HP-UX if WebSphere Application Server is detected. The configuration servlet allows client applets to communicate with the configuration servlet through a firewall without opening any additional ports on the firewall. The configuration servlet can be installed manually on the other operating systems, and for Web application servers that are not recognized by the installation program.

Decide what security levels to set.

You can configure your Web server to use SSL or TLS (https), so that the data stream from your Web server to your browser is encrypted. After the client is loaded in a browser, however, it communicates directly with the host. You may be able to configure Host On-Demand to provide SSL or TLS security to your host sessions.

  • If the Telnet server supports SSL or TLS, the clients can be configured to also use SSL or TLS.
  • If your Telnet server does not support SSL, and you are running Host On-Demand on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, AIX, Linux Intel™, or Linux for zSeries, you can configure the Host On-Demand Redirector to provide SSL support. The Redirector acts as a transparent proxy between the client and the Telnet server by using port remapping. It can encrypt data between the client and itself, between itself and the host, or both.

Install and configure Host On-Demand.

Follow the installation instructions. Then use the Host On-Demand online help for more detailed information about configuring Host On-Demand so users can access host sessions.

Running a CICS Gateway session.

Host On-Demand V9 has upgraded to the CICS Transaction Gateway (CTG) V5.1 client package. Therefore, to run a Host On-Demand CICS Gateway session, you must be running CTG V5.1, or later.

Using Unicode support for OS/400.

Host Access Client Package for Multiplatforms, V5.0

The program consists of WebSphere Host On-Demand (HOD), V9.0 and Personal Communications for Windows (PCOMM), V5.8. The license to the program entitles you to use PCOMM or HOD at any time individually, but never concurrently. Your license to use the program is conditioned on you not using PCOMM and HOD concurrently. References to program in these "program-unique terms" shall mean either PCOMM or HOD. Except as modified herein, your use of the program will be governed by the license that accompanies HOD or PCOMM, as applicable.

The program can be accessed and used by a single user, or multiple distinct users, directly or indirectly (such as, accessing the program via an intermediate machine or piece of software). The license to the program entitles only one user to access and use the program. If you want to allow multiple users to access and use the program, you should acquire an additional license for each distinct user that you would like, directly or indirectly, to access and use the program. The total number of distinct users that access and use the program cannot exceed the total number of program licenses you have acquired.

The program includes portions of DB2 Connect. You are authorized to install and use one copy of these components only in association with your licensed use of PCOMM in accordance with the terms of the license that accompanies PCOMM. Except as modified herein, your use of the DB2® components is subject to the terms and conditions of the license agreement that accompanies the DB2 components.

Personal Communications for Windows, V5.8: The program is licensed only for use by a single user at a time. A user is defined as a person. You must acquire a license for every person that will access and use the program, either directly or indirectly. Under this license, you may allow only one user to access and use the program either directly or indirectly (such as by accessing the program via an intermediate machine or piece of software).

If you install the program on a server that can physically allow more than one user at a time to access and use programs on that server, or if you provide access to the program via an intermediate piece of software which has the ability to consolidate different user's requests to access the program and route those requests through one or more computers, only Users for whom a license has been acquired may access and use the program.

The program may contain cryptography for data which is subject to special export licensing requirements of the U.S. Department of Commerce or other countries. Refer to the program documentation or consult your IBM representative for details on the available level of encryption. You are hereby notified that use by, or transfer to, users in different countries of the same program, may be prohibited or subject to special import laws, regulations, or policies from the user's national government or special export laws, regulations, or policies from your national government. You assume all responsibility for ensuring that the program is used or transferred in accordance with all applicable import and export laws, regulations, and policies.

DB2 Connect components: The program includes portions of DB2 Connect. You are authorized to install and use one copy of these components only in association with your licensed use of Personal Communications for Windows, V5.8 for the storage and management of data used and generated by the program, and not for other data management purposes. For example, this license does not include inbound connections to the database from other applications for queries or report generation. You are authorized to install and use these components only with and on the same workstation as the program and can be used with the following restrictions.

DB2 Connect components can only be installed on the same workstation as the program and can be used with the following restrictions:

  • Only SNA connections can be used.
  • The DB2 Connect components can only be used with PCOMM.
  • A maximum of six concurrent database connections can be established using the DB2 Connect components; and applications using the DB2 Connect components can only connect to a single database at a time.

If you require the DB2 Connect components for TCP/IP connectivity, have more then six connections or need to have connectivity to multiple databases with the integrity of the 2-phase commit protocol, you must obtain the proper entitlement for the DB2 Connect product. Your use of the DB2 components is subject to the terms and conditions of the license agreement which accompany the components except as limited in this license. The DB2 components may not be used for any other purpose. Please contact your DB2 reseller if your needs exceed this license agreement, to obtain a full DB2 UDB program.

The program contains Host Access Beans for Java files (referred to as components) that, subject to this Agreement, may be used by you in other products within your enterprise. The complete list of Components can be found in the Host Access Beans for Java Product Information document (HTML) on the program media.

Subject to this Agreement and all terms and conditions in this section, IBM grants you the rights to reproduce these components and include the unmodified components in your products that add substantial value to the components (your products). You may distribute your products solely within your enterprise and solely for use in your business by users authorized to use the program. Under this Agreement, You may copy and use your products on every computer for which a registered user PoE for the program has been obtained. If you store your products on a server, you may allow only computers for which a registered user PoE for the program has been obtained to access and use your products.

You may allow computers for which a registered user PoE for the program has not been obtained to access and use your products only if you acquire a license and PoE separate from this program package to WebSphere Host On-Demand V5, or later or Personal Communications V5.0, or later, and then only under the terms of such program's license agreement and license information (including any applicable limits on concurrent or registered users).

EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, THE COMPONENTS ARE PROVIDED AS IS, WITH NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND IBM HEREBY DISCLAIMS THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. You agree to indemnify and hold IBM harmless from and against any damages arising from your use of the components.

WebSphere Host On-Demand, V9.0: The program is licensed only for use by a single user at a time. A user is defined as a person. You must acquire a license for every person that will access and use the program, either directly or indirectly. Under this license, you may allow only one user to access and use the program either directly or indirectly (such as by accessing the program via an intermediate machine or piece of software).

If you install the program on a server that can physically allow more than one user at a time to access and use the program on that server, or if you provide access to the program via an intermediate piece of software which has the ability to consolidate different user's requests to access the program and route those requests through one or more computers, only users for whom a license has been acquired may access and use the program.

The program may contain cryptography for data that is subject to special export licensing requirements of the U.S. Department of Commerce or other countries. Refer to the program documentation or consult your IBM representative for details on the available level of encryption. You are hereby notified that use by, or transfer to, users in different countries of the same program, may be prohibited or subject to special import laws, regulations, or policies from the user's national government or special export laws, regulations, or policies from your national government. You assume all responsibility for ensuring that the program is used and transferred in accordance with all applicable import and export laws, regulations, and policies.

The program contains the ctgclient.jar component of the CICS Transaction Gateway V5.1 (Gateway classes). You may only use the Gateway classes if you have purchased a license for the CICS Transaction Gateway V5.1 (or later) program. Your use of the Gateway classes is governed by the terms and conditions of the license agreement(s) that govern your use of the CICS Transaction Gateway program.

The program contains Host Access Beans for Java, Host On-Demand J2EE Connector, Host Access Class Library, Programmable HOD, and Session Manager API (each referred to below as components) that, subject to this Agreement, may be used by you in other products within your enterprise. Both the JavaBeans and Host Access Class Library can be found in the Host On-Demand Toolkit CD-ROM. This CD-ROM can be found in the program packaging along with the Host On-Demand CD-ROM.

For purposes of this agreement, a product shall mean a product that you use internally within your enterprise for your own internal business purposes that includes the components. Subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement including, but not limited to, the authorized use restrictions below, IBM grants you the rights to reproduce these components and include the unmodified components in products. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have secured all rights necessary from all applicable third parties to include the components in these products.

Using or accessing a product shall be considered using or accessing the program. The reason for this is that the product contains a component of the program. Therefore, the total number of users concurrently accessing or using a product and the total number of users concurrently accessing or using the program may not exceed the total number of use authorizations that you acquired for the program. By way of example, if at any one time you have 100 users using or accessing the program and 50 users accessing or using a product, you must have acquired 150 use authorizations for the program.

You may also allow users who have acquired a separate license for Personal Communications V5.7 (PCOMM), or later, to use components as part of products that interoperate with PCOMM. When products are used in conjunction with PCOMM, such users do not count toward the number of use authorizations that you are required to purchase for the program as set forth above.

IBM DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY WARRANTY OR SUPPORT FOR YOUR USE OF COMPONENTS WHEN USED AS PART OF PRODUCTS THAT DO NOT USE THE API(S) DOCUMENTED BY IBM. THE DOCUMENTED API(S) ARE THE PROGRAMMABLE HOST ON-DEMAND API(S), SESSION MANAGER API(S), HACL API(S), AND HOST ON-DEMAND J2EE CONNECTOR API(S). YOU, AND NOT IBM, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OVERALL RESULTS ACHIEVED BY THE PRODUCTS.

Any subsequent changes to the above license information, after this announcement, will be included in the Licensed Information booklet. Refer to License Information form number L-DDCA-636MZC.
