Overview: Connecting to a Host

To record and build tasks, you must first establish a host connection. You do not have to connect to the actual host used by your end application, but the host application you connect to must be identical to the one used by your end application.

Each project stores its own connection options. The options vary depending on the type of host the project is using. For example, if you choose 3270 as your host type, you will see only the connection settings for a 3270 host.
