Connection Settings - UTS Environment Page

To connect to a host, you must configure at least one environment.

Environments: Lists the environments that currently exist. When you select an environment from the list, this page displays the configuration settings associated with that environment.

When you create a UTS configuration for the first time, this list includes a predefined environment (UDSSRC). However, this predefined environment does not specify the connection to use. To complete the configuration of the predefined environment, you must select the environment name and then choose a connection from the Connection list.

If you do not want to use the predefined environment, you can delete it and create new environments.

New: Creates a new environment.

Delete: Deletes the selected environment.

Note If you delete an environment that is specified on the General page, you will not be able to save the configuration until you select a different environment.

Application: Type the name of the host application or host operating mode to be accessed (up to 12 characters).

This is the word or phrase that is sent to the host when you first establish communication with the host. If you were using a host terminal, this would be the $$OPEN name of the application.

The application name is typically the same as the environment name. However, these names can be different. For example, the environment name might be MAPPER, and the application name might be UDSSRC. During a terminal emulation session, you would type $$OPEN MAPPER at the prompt, and UDSSRC would be sent to the host.

Initial Transaction: Type the character, word, or phrase that the client should send to the host when communication with the host is first established (up to 15 characters). This parameter is optional and is primarily used with TIP. For example, you might type ^ to run MAPPER. This parameter can also be used to transmit passwords.

Connection: Select the connection to use for this environment. If you have not yet configured a connection, select the Connection tab and do so before continuing.

TSAP: Type the desired Transport Service Access Point (TSAP), up to 32 characters, or select one from the list. For example, you might use TIPCSU for TIP connections. If you're not sure which value to use, contact your host administrator.

Note This option appears only if the selected connection is for a Host LAN Controller (HLC) or a Distributed Communications Processor (DCP) in IP router mode.
