TCP/IP Support

The following procedures relate to the implementation of TCP/IP only:
  • The HLQ.PROFILE.TCPIP dataset contains system operation and configuration information for the TCP/IP address space. The PORT statement reserves a port for a given user ID and identifies the protocol to be used on that port. It is not required that you reserve a port number for IBM® Connect:Direct®.
  • To verify that a connection between nodes can be established, use the TCP/IP PING command. The PING command sends an echo request to a foreign host to determine if the computer is accessible.
  • To verify that a connection exists to the remote IBM Connect:Direct, issue the following command:
    TELNET ip-address,port-number
