Not exactly. When you create APPC controller type *ANYNW, you create a kind
of "funnel", leading down to SNA-over-IP support.
For this controller you specify control point - as <network ID>/<CP name>
pair.
They could be anything at all - not necessarily TCPIP.

When you configure QAPPNRMT, for every remote location, which is supposed
to be reached via SNA-over-IP, you add an entry and specify control point
from *ANYNW controller.

When APPC session is established for a given remote location, system will
look in QAPPNRMT, then find appropriate APPC controller using control point
information. If this happens to be *ANYNW controller, then SNA-over-IP is
used to find IP address, establish connection etc. etc.

You may have as many *ANYNW controllers as you want (with different CP
names) - or funnel all SNA-over-IP sessions via single *ANYNW controller.
