Host - 5250 Connection Settings - Advanced Page

Each of your projects store their own specific connection options. These are configured using the Connection Settings dialog box. These options change depending on the host type you have selected. For example, if you choose 5250 as your host type, you will only see connection settings for a 5250 host.

Note A project is the collection of all files needed to create, modify, publish, and execute a task or set of tasks.

The Connection Settings dialog box consists of three pages: the General page, the Advanced page, and the Security Page.

The Advanced page provides advanced 5250 connection settings for your current project.
