IBM SNA to IP Migration?

» close window

The Question is:

We are currently running several sna layered products (SNA-RJE, Term Emulation,
 Data Streaming) through a Channel Attach Dec SNA Gateway.
We would like to convert the applications/users that use these layered products
 to connect via TCP/IP instead of the old gateways.
Do these products support connecting to IBM Mainframe systems via TCP/IP?  Can
 it be done without having to re-write/compile applications (configuration
 change)?  Is there sufficient documentation to describe how this is

The Answer is :

  The specified products use IBM SNA protocols to communicate with IBM
  host systems.  If you wish to use IP protocols, then you will be using
  other products and other APIs and IP routing -- the OpenVMS Wizard is
  not aware of an SNA-to-IP gateway (transparent or otherwise), but IBM
  SNA networking is well outside the usual haunts of the OpenVMS Wizard.
