The SET HOST/TN3270 command allows you to connect with a TELNET server on a remote IBM system by invoking the TN3270 terminal emulator TELNET client program on the local host. The parameter that specifies the remote host is either an IP host name or an IP address. The TN3270 client will automatically determine the terminal type (IBM-3278-2, IBM-3278-3, IBM-3278-4, or IBM-32798-5).



Specifies that Kerberos authentication should be used for acquiring access to the remote node.


Specifies the remote TCP port to use. The default is 23.


Sets the terminal emulator to one of the following terminal types: VT100, VT200, VT300, VT400, VT500.


$ SET HOST/TN3270 remotehst3

This example creates a connection to a TELNET server on the remote IBM system remotehst3 over a TCP/IP connection.
