Hello Marc,

You're right. My apology is: It was already late in the evening. ;-)
apologies accepted :-)


But the most interesting question is: Why did IBM ship the *PGM with *PUBLIC *EXCLUDE? Am I supposed to change this? Is there another, "correct" way?
This is a good question and I do not have the answer. However

Thanks for this extensive explanation. Again, in some way, the answer seems to be (yet again): It depends…

You can try to set back *EXCLUDE for *PUBLIC and add *USE for QTCP for your SLIP setup to work.

Very good hint! This actually works!

I do not find any information about an APAR or a fix for that issue, but I can only guess that a PTF was provided in the past.

I did install some CUME tape, but I'm not sure if this was the latest, and complete.

You can find this book here ftp://ftp.www.ibm.com/systems/power/docs/systemi/v5r3/en_US/sc415336.pdf.

Not related to V3R2 but it might apply the same way.


Not sure to understand what you mean with "recursive".

Configure TCP/IP with OpNav requiring IP connectivity. :-)

On those versions, it was possible to use both TCP/IP and SNA communications for OpNav.

Oh! I wasn't aware of that. So it boils down to "only" get some DOS and Windows 3 running install some old Client Access and… Oof. I'll pass. Too much Windows involved.

But in any case, there is still a login with a valid user profile which will run all the actions driven by the OpNav interface, with related authority.

Expanding on this, I'm rather appalled by "click here" explanations from IBM when there are 5250 commands just requiring a terminal (emulator) and nothing else.

Whatever the way you use to configure SLIP (OpNav or 5250 commands), the batch job handling the SLIP session will run with QTCP user profile.

True. I was hoping for some explanation about the need to change authorities from the manual. How is a "simple" administrator supposed to know about this when the manual just states "click here, click there, voilá, internet!" ;-)

I still have some issue with TCP. See here, if interested:
