Overview: Managing Host Access IDs

Management & Control Services (MCS) provides IDs to client applications at run-time. An ID is connection data that is unique for an individual session with a host. If you use MCS to manage IDs, you can omit unique connection data from the client (viewer, printer applet, presentation, or Synapta Services Builder for UTS/T27) session configuration. This lets you create a single configuration that can be used by multiple users to establish multiple sessions with a host, rather than having to create a separate configuration for each host connection.

When a user starts an application, the client application gets an ID from MCS and uses the ID to connect to the host. MCS keeps track of (monitors) the IDs that are in use. If all the IDs assigned to a pool are in use, no other host sessions can be opened through that pool.

For custom applications developed using Synapta Services Builder for UTS/T27, you can assign IDs only to named pools. The IDs you create in MCS need to map to valid UTS terminal IDs or T27 station IDs on the host.
