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

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 On Demand Business.

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

IBM Rational Host On-Demand

Host On-Demand is intended for clients who want to provide secure, cost-effective host access to other 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 host applications for TN3270E, TN5250, VT52/100/220/420, and CICS, and an FTP/sftp client 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.

On-Demand is installed only on the Web server, and the Host On-Demand code is downloaded via a Web site 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, or Web Start 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 2003, AIX®, Solaris, HP, and Linux servers to IBM i and System z 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 is Windows, Linux, Mac OS, or other supported workstation environments.

With a rich Java toolset, including Host Access Beans for Java and the API, you can help rapidly create custom on demand applications to achieve a competitive advantage. Applications developed using the Host On-Demand 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.

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.

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person that is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Authorization for use on home/Portable computer

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

Program Unique Terms for IBM Rational Host Access Client Package for Multiplatforms, V7

Authorized User Licensing Model

The program is licensed only for use by an Authorized User.

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person that is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Authorized Use

The program consists of IBM Rational Host On-Demand v11.0 ("HOD") and IBM Personal Communications for Windows v6.0 ("PCOMM"). The license to the program entitles licensee to use PCOMM or HOD at any time individually, but never concurrently. Licensee is not authorized to use PCOMM and HOD concurrently. References below to "program" in these "program-unique Terms" shall mean either PCOMM or HOD. Except as modified herein, Licensee's use of the program will be governed by the license that accompanies HOD or PCOMM, as applicable.

Personal Communications, V6

The program is licensed only for use by an Authorized User.

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person that is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

If licensee installs 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 licensee provides 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 Authorized 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 US Department of Commerce or other countries. Refer to the program documentation or consult licensee's IBM representative for details on the available level of encryption. Licensee is 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 licensee's national government. Licensee assumes all responsibility for ensuring that the program is used or transferred in accordance with all applicable import and export laws, regulations, and policies.

IBM Rational Host On-Demand, V11

The program is licensed only for use by a single, Authorized User at a time.

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person that is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

If licensee installs 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 licensee provides 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 US Department of Commerce or other countries. Refer to the program documentation or consult licensee's IBM representative for details on the available level of encryption. Licensee is 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 licensee's national government. Licensee assumes 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). Licensee may only use the Gateway classes if licensee has purchased a license for the CICS Transaction Gateway V5.1 (or higher) program. Licensee's use of the Gateway classes is governed by the terms and conditions of the license agreement that govern licensee's 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 licensee in other products within licensee's enterprise. Both the JavaBeans™ and Host Access Class Library can be found in the "Host On-Demand Toolkit image". This image can be found in the program packaging on the Host On-Demand V11 DVD.

For purposes of this Agreement, a "Product" shall mean a product that licensee uses internally within licensee's enterprise for licensee's 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 licensee the rights to reproduce these components and include the unmodified components in products. It is licensee's responsibility to ensure that licensee has 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 licensee acquired for the program. By way of example, if at any one time licensee has 100 users using or accessing the program and 50 users accessing or using a product, licensee must have acquired 150 user authorizations for the program.

A license must be acquired for every end user that uses the components, either directly or indirectly (for example, such as by accessing the components via an intermediate machine, piece of software, or another person on the end users behalf).

Licensee may also allow users who have acquired a separate license for IBM Personal Communications Version 5.9 or higher ("PCOMM") 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 licensee is required to purchase for the program as set forth above.

IBM does not provide any warranty or support for licensee's use of components when used as part of products that do not use the API documented by IBM. The documented API are the programmable Host On-Demand API, Session Manager API, Session Manager API, HACL API, and Host On-Demand J2EE Connector API, licensee, and not IBM, are responsible for the overal results achieved by the products.
