It will be possible when you get v3r1m3 of CA, as well as the supporting
PTFs fot v3r2 of OS/400. In v3r1m3 of CA, it will be possible to specify in
PC5250 that you want to bypass signon. This is just like it was in APPC
connections. Then the only entry will be for the initial connection.

At present, you can do this if you are running an APPC connection.

I don't know if there's a way to do this with Graphical Access. Maybe with
APPC, eventually with TCP/IP. Anybody know?
