DESCRIPTION

TCP/IP provides a set of protocols by which computers can communicate with each other. The introduction of TCP/IP for VSE/ESA into your environment means that VSE can now communicate with any computer running an operating system that has a TCP/IP implementation. Fortunately, every major platform has TCP/IP implementations. It's fair to say that TCP/IP for VSE/ESA provides you with the opportunity to integrate VSE into the rest of your environment. Implementation of TCP/IP exists for OS/390, VM, AS/400, OS/2, Windows, Windows 95, Windows NT, AIX, HP/UX, SUN/OS, BSD, UNIX, Linux and many more. TCP/IP for VSE/ESA provides a set of applications that allows you to get immediate (day one) benefits from the introduction of the product into your environment. These applications include the ability to:

  • Transfer files between VSE systems and other servers running TCP/IP via the File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

  • Log-on to VSE applications from PCs or UNIX workstation using TN3270 Server.

  • Log-on to UNIX, AS/400s or other TCP/IP systems directly from a CICS (R) session using the Telnet Client.

  • Print files from UNIX systems or PCs on VSE-controlled printers using the Line Printer Daemon (LPD) server.

  • Print files from VSE on workstation or LAN printers using the LPR client.

  • Use the VSE host as a Web server in the following sense:
    • Web pages and Java (TM) applets can be stored in the VSE library and accessed/downloaded via Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) from Web browsers. "Development of these pages" via tools must be done on a different platform.

    • The Web server in TCP/IP for VSE/ESA does support the Common Gateway Interface (CGI). Using this interface, you could write your own application code to access VSE "legacy" data and subsequently present this data on a Web browser GUI.
  • Write your own applications using our Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). APIs are available for a wide variety of programming languages, including S/390 assembler, PL/I, COBOL and C Language.
TCP/IP for VSE/ESA supports a variety of connections, including:
  • Token Ring and Ethernet LAN connection via ES/9000 (R) 9221 Integrated Communications Adapter (ICA), IBM 3172 Interconnect Controller and S/390 Open Systems Adapter 2 (OSA-2)

  • Common Link Access to Workstation protocol (CLAW) connection to RS/6000 (TM)

  • Channel to Channel Adapter (CTCA) between S/390 systems
The VSE/ESA operating system provides an excellent foundation on which to build your Open Systems applications. By providing seamless, bidirectional access to VSE libraries, VSAM and POWER residing on your mainframe, VSE can truly participate in a multivendor, open-systems environment allowing you to leverage fully your VSE investment. TCP/IP for VSE/ESA is available as follows:
  1. TCP/IP for VSE/ESA Application Pak

    The following applications are contained in the Application Pak:

    • TN3270 server on VSE host Permit PC/workstation users access to VSE applications.

    • Telnet/TN3270 client function on VSE host. Allows you to logon to remote hosts from VSE.

    • Web server (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Daemon) on VSE. Allows you to use VSE as a Web server for corporate intranets or the Internet.

    • File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Client and Server on VSE. Allows you to transfer files to or from VSE using the File Transfer Protocol.

    • Line Printer Requestor (LPR) and Line Printer Daemon (LPD) on VSE. Allows you to print VSE POWER reports on any TCP/IP-attached printer and to print LAN files on VSE POWER attached printers.
    The Application Pak includes the functions of the Base Pak.

  2. TCP/IP for VSE/ESA Base Pak
    • The Base Pak provides the possibility to write/port TCP/IP for VSE/ESA applications to the VSE host using the sockets interface. It consists of:

    • IP layer, TCP, UDP, ICMP

    • Device drivers (ICA, 3172, CLAW (RS/6000), CTCA)

    • Socket API (Assembler, COBOL, PL/I, BSD "C" socket interface)
You can expect the following benefits when using TCP/IP for VSE/ESA:
  • Use of TCP/IP in your network will save personnel costs because:
    • Less effort is required to manage the network
    • Fewer skills and resources are needed
  • Connecting PCs/workstations to VSE via TCP/IP saves hardware and software costs because:
    • All major PC/workstation platforms offer TCP/IP at no additional charge

    • Special SNA software or hardware (for example for 3270 emulation) is no longer required
  • The ready-to-use TCP/IP applications, like File Transfer Program (FTP), provide immediate benefits to you. So, you do not need to invest in any additional programming work to have a running solution.

  • FTP itself is a major contributor to the overall value of TCP/IP. It allows direct ("end-to-end") file transfer rather than doing file transfer stepwise through intermediate systems and different protocols.

  • Printing is another TCP/IP application that can help increase productivity. Since printouts can be printed everywhere and where needed, turnaround times are reduced and the printer hardware investment can be used more efficiently.

  • The World Wide Web is one of the most remarkable phenomena of the 20th century. What makes the Web work is the availability of Web servers on most popular computer platforms. Now, with TCP/IP for VSE/ESA, S/390 servers running VSE/ESA can also provide services to local intranets and to the Internet.

    The TCP/IP for VSE/ESA Web server allows you to maintain HTML documents in VSE files. You may keep these Web pages in VSE library files, VSAM files or VSE sequential datasets. You may also use other Web objects in VSE files, such as Java programs, graphics, sound or multimedia files.

    While storing HTML documents in VSE libraries might be useful for static data, it is far more useful to be able to dynamically create data based on data that it stored in the VSE/ESA system. The TCP/IP for VSE/ESA Web server allows you to do this via a CGI (Common Gateway Interface) Application Programming Interface (API). Through the CGI interface, you can specify a program to get control for each Web request. The program runs under control of the TCP/IP for VSE/ESA dispatcher and can use all of the facilities of the VSE operating system to return HTML to the Web browser. For example, one could write a CGI program to perform an inventory operation, reading and updating data in a VSAM file.

  • Customers can address additional business opportunities for their existing and new applications. For example:
    • TCP/IP and Web technology easily extend the reach of an existing host-based application to new external or internal customers/end-users. This could result, for example, in improved service to their customers.

    • Mission-critical data on VSE can be an integral part of new TCP/IP and Web-based business applications. For VSE customers, this means re-use of their current investment when doing any business-process re-engineering.
TCP/IP for VSE/ESA is key enabled. User access keys must be used during TCP/IP startup to use the product.

VSE/ESA Version 2 Release 3 provides PC-based TCP/IP Configuration Support to help install the TCP/IP product, setup TCP/IP initialization members, create TCP/IP startup jobs, as well as CICS and VTAM (R) definitions. This tool runs on OS/2 and all Windows platforms. Extensive online help is provided. This tool can also be downloaded from the VSE/ESA home page.

One-Time Charge: Customers who pay a one-time charge for a licensed program receive enhancements and future releases, if any, at no additional charge. Significant new functions may be offered as an optional feature and charged for separately.

Variable Charges: The applicable graduated one-time or graduated monthly license charge will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the licensed program is licensed for use. If the program is designated to a processor in a group for which no charge is listed above, the charge of the next higher group listed applies.

For upgrades of one-time license charge licenses to a machine in a higher group, the upgrade charge will be the difference in the then current charges between the two groups. For downgrades of one-time license charge licenses to a machine in a lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of one-time or primary license charges paid.

Entry Support License One-Time Charge: One-time charge authorizes use only on IBM Entry End User/390 Machines.
