ADSL and LEGACY

By edpactdir ·
I hear that it is possible to setup ADSL to connect to an AS/400 on a B-Class LAN and C-CLass WAN using static IP's. My problem stems from the fact that I have never configured anything of this nature. Any hints, suggestions or direction from out there would really be appreciated!!!

ADSL and LEGACY

by Ann777 In reply to ADSL and LEGACY

Connecting to mainframes via DSL is not vastly different from connecting via modem. Just replace the modem with ethernet and your doing the same thing.

In other words, turn on your computer and you're connected to DSL. Run the software you use to access the mainframe and you should be good to go.

In your case the IBM AS/400 if unix based (as most of these models are), you'll need a unix based software for remote control. Tridia makes "Double-Vision" for unix/linux and I've used it onIBM mainframes as well. It operates similar to PC Anywhere (in the Windows world).

So basically, there's no real difference... you need software to establish that remote-control and you configure it with ip addresses instead of telephone numbers.

There are other manufacturers out there that make similar software --> just make sure whatever you decide on works on the IBM AIX version you use.
