TPNS Input User Exit

Downloadable files


The exit routine, ITPGSIPA, can be used to glean the address information from received data.

Download Description

Get the full address of the source for the last data received for Simple UDP
or Simple TCP simulated clients by using the Input User exit. It features a
Message Generation exit to set the full address for TPNS to use with the
next message (or connection).

When called as an INPUT exit, the full INET address for the message being
received is saved by Simple TCP or Simple UDP terminals. This exit is
particularly helpful in a UDP server environment.

When called as a Message Generation exit, it moves the INET address from
Network Save Area 13 into the internal TPNS control block so that the new
address will be used for the next message transmitted (UDP) or the next
connection (TCP).


Requires TPNS Version 3 Release 5 Service Level 9711.
