Mainframe Access provides comprehensive support for communications between PC clients and mainframe servers. Mainframe Access supports both TCP/IP and LU6.2 protocols. Mainframe Access' ability to bridge client TCP/IP connections to SNA LU6.2 server connections eliminates the need to install, configure and maintain SNA software packages on your client and server workstations. You can even access any DB2 for z/OS and OS/390 database using TCP/IP client connections, without the need for specific levels of DB2 software. Normally, DB2 Version 5.1, or later, is required for TCP/IP access. Mainframe Access, however, dynamically associates TCP/IP client connections with traditional LU6.2 DRDA connections to the DB2 systems.
