Implementing TCP/IP on z/OS

Implementing TCP/IP on z/OS

Audience

This course is designed for system programmers who will be responsible for implementing TCP/IP on z/OS.

Prerequisites

Delegates are expected to be familiar with:

Duration

3 days. Hands on.

This course is available on site only. Please call for details.

Course Objectives

The course will provide delegates with a detailed plan for the implementation of TCP/IP.

During this course delegates will be involved with class exercises, such as configuring a TCP/IP stack on z/OS including a network interface, telnet and ftp.

TCP/IP and VTAM (SNA).
Installing TCP/IP - system's work.
TCP/IP and Unix Services.
Configuring TCP/IP:
