DESCRIPTION
BUSINESS SOLUTION
TCP/IP Version 1.1 for OS/2 provides additional function  to  the
previous  Version  1.0  with the inclusion of Network File System
Client support.
This enhancement provides  access  to  and  participation  in  an
overall  business  solution for a user by implementing NFS Client
over IBM and other Vendors Host Systems for OS/2  based  end-user
workstations.  NFS  allows  data  to  be  accessed  from attached
systems running NFS over either an Ethernet (TM) version 2.0,  an
IEEE 802.3, or an IBM Token- Ring Internet Protocol Lan.
The Network File System (NFS) Client function gives the OS/2 user
the  capability  to  access and change common user data shared by
S/370 Host Systems and other TCP/IP users in  the  network.  This
function  provides  user  access to systems other than IBM on the
network,  as well. The net result is that more timely information
is made available to all users,  thereby  aiding  them  in  their
decision making process.
The  NFS  client function allows authorized users to access files
located on remote systems as if they were  local.  Thus  an  OS/2
workstation  user  can access a file anywhere in the network that
it is attached to, thereby reducing the amount of storage  needed
at the workstation site.
NFS  support  on  TCP/IP  for  OS/2 EE allows the sharing of data
among IBM TCP/IP for OS/2 systems, IBM TCP/IP  for  MVS  systems,
IBM  TCP/IP for VM systems, IBM AIX family of products, including
RISC/System 6000 systems using AIX Version 3,  as  well  as  many
other vendor's systems supporting NFS.
When  the NFS Client function is used in conjunction with the IBM
TCP/ IP for VM and MVS products, the user receives the additional
benefits of S/370 data management.
USER PRODUCTIVITY
The Network File System permits the user  or  client  machine  to
access  data  from the server(s) transparently. The user issues a
"mount" command which associates a local directory with a file or
file system on a remote host. The"unmount"  command  removes  the
association  established  by an earlier "mount" command. The user
can issue multiple "mount"  commands  associating  data  that  is
resident   on   one  or  several  systems  with  different  local
directories. This directory and sub-directory  structure  can  be
different for different individual client systems.
The  NFS  Client  support  provides  a level of user productivity
enhancement. The Remote Procedure  Call  Application  Programming
Interface(RPC  API)  provides a set of program accessible library
routines that allow for transparent execution  of  procedures  on
remote systems. Application programmers can use this interface to
write write programs employing RPC technology.
The  Network  File System uses Remote Procedure Call as the basis
for communication between client and server. The Remote Procedure
Call (RPC) function makes remote procedures  appear  as  if  they
were  local  to  the  client  system,  and  uses an External Data
Representation (XDR) which allows operation to be independent  of
machine  internal formats. RPC is available to the user who wants
to write their own  applications.  The  Network  File  System  is
written to the UDP, User Datagram Protocol, interface.
Additional user productivity aides are provided by the support of
the following functions:
1. SLIP - TCP/IP Version 1.1 for OS/2 EE includes support for the
Serial Line Internet Protocol, SLIP.
The  purpose  of  SLIP  is  to  allow  use  of  the  same  TCP/IP
applications (e.g., TELNET, FTP, LaMail) over a serial line as if
the OS/2 system were directly  connected  to  a  LAN.    Multiple
TCP/IP  applications  can  be  used  from  the serially connected
workstation.
2. FTP API - TCP/IP Version 1.1 for OS/2 EE includes support  for
a  File  Transfer Protocol Application Programming Interface (FTP
API).
This File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client application  programming
interface  is  a high-level programming interface for sending and
receiving files, creating and listing remote  directories.  Third
party  transfers  that  use  the  PROXY  subcommand  and multiple
simultaneous connections are supported.
3. LaMail - TCP/IP Version 1.1 for OS/2 EE  includes  the  LaMail
mail handler.
LaMail  is  an  IBM  Presentation  Manager  (TM) application that

allows users to view and create mail, save mail in  mail  folders
and  perform many other mail handling and file editing functions.
With NFS, mail folders may be stored on a remote  system.  LaMail
allows users to exchange mail with other systems that support the
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) used in TCP/IP.
The  requirement for both the IBM C Language Compiler Version 1.1
(6280284) and the Microsoft C (TM) Version 5.1 Compiler  (414557)
has been removed.
GROWTH ENABLEMENT and INVESTMENT PROTECTION
The  NFS  Client function enables the user to continue to use his
existing DASD file system without being concerned about having to
develop an independent file system for  his  TCP/IP  OS/2  users.
Thus:
o The existing investment in DASD is protected
o Growth of the present DASD investment is enabled
o  the  additional capital expense of a separate DASD database is
avoided
o Development costs associated with an additional file system are
avoided
o Existing resources are made available to a  greater  number  of
users, resulting in lower costs per user
o  More  data  retrieval  options  are  made  available to users,
resulting in greater ease of use and flexibility.

Investment protection for a customer  with  the  IBM  PC  Network
installed  is  provided  by  the  inclusion of support for the PC
Network in the TCP/IP Version  1.1  for  OS/2  EE  product.  This
support  is  mutually  exclusive  with  the  support provided for
Ethernet.
STANDARDS
IBM is committed to industry  standards.  The  Internet  protocol
suite  is  still  evoling  through  the  mechanism of Request for
Comments (RFC). New protocols are being designed and  implemented
by  researchers, and are brought to the attention of the Internet
community in the form of an RFC. Some of them are so useful  that
they  become  a  "recommended"  protocol.  that  is,  all  future
implementations of  TCP/IP  are  recommended  to  implement  this
particular  function  or  protocol.  These  become the "de facto"
standards, by which the TCP/IP protocol suite is built upon.  The
Network File System Client feature provided in the TCP/IP Version
1.1 for OS/2 EE system is based upon the following RFCs:
o RFC 1094 "NFS: Network File System Protocol Specification"
o RFC 1057 "RPC: Remote Procedure Call Protocol Specification"
o RFC 1014 "XDR: External Data Representation Standard"
STATEMENT OF GENERAL DIRECTION
It  is  IBM's  intention  to  provide  an  X Window System server
function using the Presentation Manager in the  TCP/IP  for  OS/2
environment.
Announcement  of  this capability will be based on IBM's business
and technical judgement.

SECURITY, AUDITABILITY AND CONTROL
IBM TCP/IP  for  OS/2  EE  uses  the  security  and  auditability
features  of  the  OS/2  Extended  Edition  operating system. The
KERBEROS* function provided in TCP/IP for  OS/2  can  provide  an
additional  security  capability when implemented in user-written
TCP/IP applications.

User  management  is  responsible  for  evaluation, selection and
implementation of security features,  administrative  procedures,
and appropriate controls in application systems and communication
facilities.
*  KERBEROS normally provides user authentication by means of the
Data Encryption Standard (DES) algorithm. The DES feature  cannot
be  exported  outside  of  the  United  States  and Canada due to
government regulations. Thus, the DES (Data Encryption Scheme) is
not provided and the user must write his  own  scheme.  IBM  will
provide  the  information  required  by the customer to allow the
customer to write his own encryption routine.
User management is responsible  for  evaluation,  selection,  and
implementation  of  security features, administrative procedures,
and appropriate controls in application systems and communication
facilities.
