APPTYPE(*NRF) specifies the logon string that is sent to the host system when a request is made to establish a session. DEVCLS(*SNPT) specifies the sign-on (logon) text that is sent to the host system after starting SNA pass-through support.

This parameter also specifies the logon string that is sent to the system services control point (SSCP) on the host network when the file is opened for *NRF.

*SAME
The value does not change.
*NONE

No text is sent to the host system.
