Connecting to the Host Via TCP/IP

The Synapta Services Builder for CICS run-time servers support two types of host connections: TCP/IP and SNA. (For more information about using SNA host connections, see Connecting to the Host Via SNA.)

TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is an industry-standard communication protocol that provides communication between applications and different types of interconnected networks. Connection definitions are referred to as systems. Creating a TCP/IP system in the MCS management console, you can establish a TCP/IP connection to the host.

A new TCP/IP system consists of some basic configuration parameters: a System ID, the IP address of the host, and the port number.
