Error description

  • Customer's applications depend on auto-reconnect function
    of telnet3270 if user jumps from one to another because
    their application issues DCTLU to TN3270 gateway when logoff
    from the source application and it translated to 'disconnect'
    of TCPIP connection with client.
    When customer was using old HOD, the HOD emmulater issued
    'connect' immediately after disconnected, however,
    Pcomm issues it two seconds later after the session was once
    disconnected.
    As the result, customer gets VTAM initial screen instead of
    the one for another host application.

    When "Auto-reconnect" is enabled for the session profile, PCSWS
    attempts reconnecting to the host whenever the connection drops.
    There is a delay of 2 seconds between each reconnect attempt.
