When using a CICS terminal autoinstall program to extract the Telnet 3270 IP address from client's terminal:
- This works fine with direct login to the CICS.
- But when logging in to the CICS through TPX multisession, it's not possible to get the terminal's IP address.
Message from CICs log:
8.51.09- ip-address 0000000000
8.51.09- ip-v6-address 0
8.51.09- ip-port 0000000000
8.51.09- CX INQ 0.0.0.0 000000 0001

How to get TPX to pass IP address to CICS?
Research suggests that at the present time we do not have this facility available in TPX.
However if this is a business requirement, It is encouraged to visit the Broadcom Communities and present this requirement/ enhancement in the 'IDEAs' section.
If there is a business case, it will reach the appropriate corners of management – that’s where priorities are set for what gets ahead in line. The more clients requesting for the same enhancement, greater would be the chances to have it available for future releases.
