Server considerations

RSE API can be a started task or user job. The only requirement is that the server is up and running before the first user tries to connect.

The security mechanisms used by RSE API server and services rely on the data sets and file systems they reside in being secure. This implies that only trusted system administrators should be able to update the program libraries and configuration files.

The server ports must be available for the users to connect to, and must be defined to your firewall protecting the host system if the users are not on your z/OS system. Listed below are the ports that are needed for external communication:
  • RSE API requests (using TCP), default port 6800.
