Issue/Introduction

Similar to connecting to CICS or IMS or other subsystems as an application entry on the main TPX menu, what needs to be done to connect to a TELNET session?

 

Environment

Release: CA TPX
Component: Z/OS

Resolution

CA TPX is a session manager that is dependent on VTAM/SNA. Once you are in a TPX environment all traffic is via VTAM/SNA.

There is no 'direct' connection to TELNET from TPX.

  • TELNET uses TCP/IP protocol.
  • TPX uses VTAM/SNA protocol.

TPX is VTAM dependent. Presently CA TPX cannot directly interface with any TCP/IP protocol based application.
