Remote command and distributed program call server
Allows PC applications to issue commands and call programs on IBM® i and return the results to the client.
The remote command and distributed program call server support allows users and applications to issue CL commands and to call programs. The remote command support allows the user to run multiple commands in the same job. It also offers a better security check for IBM i users with limited capabilities (LMTCPB =*YES, in their user profile).
The distributed program call support allows applications to call IBM i programs and pass parameters (input and output). After the program runs, the output parameter values return to the client application. This process allows applications to access IBM i resources easily without concerns about the communications and conversions that must take place.
The programs listed in the following table are included with this server.
