Overview of ID Sets

The IDs assigned to a name can be grouped into sets. For example, you might assign 100 IDs to an address pool, but you might want certain IDs to always be used together (such as 50 pairs of terminal emulation and host printer emulation IDs). By creating a set, you ensure that when a client receives one ID in the set, the second session that the user opens uses another ID in that set.

Note Smart Connectors do not support the use of ID sets.

For each name, you can create multiple sets, and each set can contain multiple IDs. Once an ID in a set is in use, none of the other IDs in that set can be used by anyone other than the client who received the first ID in the set. Once all of the IDs in a set are in use, the client can receive IDs in other sets, or IDs that are not grouped in sets.

For example, you might want each client to use one terminal emulation ID and two host printing IDs, and each host printing ID should be used with a specific configuration. To accomplish this, you would begin by creating an address pool that contains all of the terminal emulation IDs and host printing IDs:


To ensure that each terminal emulation ID is always used with two specific host printing IDs, you would group them together in sets:
