The HP DECnet SNA Gateway for Synchronous Transport (Gateway-ST)
is a Physical Unit Type 2 (PU2) gateway which consists of a dedicated
hardware device, the DEC MicroServer (DEMSA or DEMSB) that connects
to the IBM mainframe FEP over synchronous links, and provides DECnet
users access to IBM SNA mainframe systems. HP DECnet SNA Gateway
for Synchronous Transport (Gateway-ST) is similar to the HP
SNA Domain Gateway-ST but without the 3270 interactive access to
HP applications or the TCP/IP support.
The Gateway-ST supports a wide variety of access routines connecting
OpenVMS to IBM mainframes. The Gateway-ST software runs on the DEC
MicroServer (DEMSA-S*) hardware platform, which provides connectivity
for up to four synchronous lines, and the DEC MicroServer-SP (DEMSB-S*),
which provides a single synchronous line connection. HP DECnet SNA
Gateway-ST software is down-line loaded into the DEC MicroServer
or MicroServer-SP system.
The HP DECnet SNA gateway management software,
installed on the load host, configures and manages the Gateway-ST.
