    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 01.enhancement where JMON binds to      *
    *                         loopback address only                *

    ****************************************************************
    01.Security enhancement where JES Job Monitor binds to
       loopback address only. This change is incompatible with
       older RDz servers that expect JMON to bind to the default IP
       stack. By specifying LOOPBACK_ONLY=OFF in FEJJCNFG you can
       disable the new behavior, but this change is incompatible
       with current RDz servers that expect JMON to bind to the
       loopback address. As the loopback address has no TCP/IP
       stack affinity, support for _BPXK_SETIBMOPT_TRANSPORT has
       been removed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.Security enhancement where JES Job Monitor binds to
       loopback address only. This change is incompatible with
