We've connected to Advantis; we are NOT using IBMIN.  They never even
mentioned that our NETID needs to be changed.

Otherwise, I agree that changing names is the best thing to do with a new
system.



As you replied to Walden, I think there's no need to make the network ID
APPN.  APPN (the program) has no trouble connecting with other networks;
you just need to tell the other network the name you're trying to connect
to.
