Description

Learn the concepts and functions that will provide you with good skills about TCP/IP operation in IBM Mainframe environment.

Build a foundation in z/OS TCP/IP with this tutorial for beginners.

Most of the applications running under z/OS are accessible through IP networks. IBM Communications Server for z/OS implements TCP/IP for connecting terminals or applications with host applications. z/OS TCP/IP provides many functions and services in the most secure and high-performance server worldwide.

A Powerful Skill at Your Fingertips Learning the fundamentals of TCP/IP for z/OS gives you a solid understanding about how a IBM mainframe network functions, and the skills to go forward in the networking area.

What am I going to get from this course?

Students completing the course will have the knowledge to understand how TCP/IP works, which type of interfaces can be defined, which network types could be connected to a mainframe, and how to operate them. This course is focused in the networking part of z/OS TCP/IP (devices, static routing, and connectivity). Dynamic routing, applications and VIPA will be covered in another course.

  • Learn in a short time very specialized matters only available, up to now, attending private and expensive courses.
  • First, you will start learning where TCP/IP is placed into z/OS Communications Server, how and where to issue commands (TSO, console and Unix System Services) to display configuration and status of TCP/IP resources.
  • Several networking technologies can be attached to a IBM mainframe and several interfaces can be defined in TCP/IP. QDIO devices that permit to have connectivity with Ethernet networks, MPC or CTC devices that permit to use point-to-point links, or “virtual” links as Hipersocket will be explained.
  • Several demos in a real system with two z/OS interconnected will show you how to operate TCP/IP: commands to be used, how to understand the responses, start/stop devices, display IP addresses, display static routing tables, change parameters dynamically, and check connectivity through Ethernet, Hipersocket or CTC devices.
Who is the target audience?
  • Students interested in learning the basics that explain how to operate the TCP/IP stack in z/OS. .

TCP/IP for z/OS. Part II.
09:29

This demo will show you easily how to start the operation of a z/OS TCP/IP stack.

Demo - TCP/IP stack
04:31

In this Unit you will learn:

  • Describe options of linking z/OS to IP networks (Ethernet, CTC, MPC, Hipersockets and Samehost).
  • Types of network interfaces
  • Commands that inform about which interfaces are configured, their configuration and status.
  • Commands that permit to control the interfaces (NETSTAT START, NETSTAT STOP, OBEYFILE).
  • How to obtain information about routing, displaying and analyzing the routing table used by the TCP/IP stack.

At the end of the lecture, a demo will clarify with examples the concepts previously explained.
