Ok folks...put on your SNA thinking caps if you will. I have a mode
description between two systems running SNA over AnyNet. Passthru and DDM
connections between the two systems. The mode description looks like this:

                           Display Mode Description

We had a problem with APPN session timeout, which I think may have to do
with the number of sessions reaching the maximum of 512. We put in a
RCLDDMCNV which I thought would remove the conversation and the session,
removing that session from the count. Doesn't seem to be working that way.
The number of conversations is staying at 254, while the session count keeps
climbing.

How do you end a session and remove it from the count of sessions?
