Can AS400 be connected to NT

By steny.sebastian ·
We are using Novell 4.12 which contains an in-built IPX/SPX protocol. What i need to know is whether Windows NT has got that in-built feature in it.

Can AS400 be connected to NT

Yes. NT natively support IPX/SPX protocols. I've got a client with a AS/400 that talks to several NT servers for mail relays, etc.
It's called NWLINK IPX/SPX Compatible protocol.

Yes, NT has built in support IPX/SPX protocol. It is known as NWLink IPX/SPX i.e. Microsoft implementation of Novel IPX/SPX protocol. Even during the installation of NT it selects automatically TCP/IP & NWLink. NetBIOS interface is also built in on NWLink.

To connect to AS/400 with NT you can use Terminal Emlation SW or MS SNA Server. You can use TCP/IP.

Thanks

NT has support for the IPX protocol and comes with a client for netware (NTWS) or gateway for netware but that won't connect you to an AS400 unless the AS400 is running NW services . What are you trying to do with this . If all you wan to do is access the AS400 as a terminal and it supports TCPIP , check out www.mochasoft.dk for a very economical TN5250 package that runs on NT and 9X clients . We've used it at a client site and it's pretty good .

Facts about NT-AS/400 integration.

File Transfer
-------------
Use AS/400 Client Acess with Winsock as the protocol for the average end user. It's simple and effective.

TCP/IP is fully supported on the AS/400 3.6 and above, I believe. I recommend 4.2, though. FTP works fine.
-----------------------
shared folder services
-----------------------
Provided browsing is working properly on your network and shared folder jobs are active on the 400, you can see the 400 and its shared folders from a windows explorer browser.

-----------------
Link Services
-----------------
You can load DLC for Windows NT, but I recommend you consider SNA if you are going to need a DLC link.


--------------------
Other considerations
--------------------
NT will run on an AS/400 (even when the as/400 is running OS/400), and this makes life a lot easier if you are an all netware shop right now. You can get a module on which an NT PDC can run. Check it out with IBM before spending any money on an expen
