After you install AcuConnect, you need to configure the server. At a maximum, this can entail configuring the environment, creating a server configuration file for AcuConnect, and creating a runtime configuration file for the server component of your COBOL program. If you accept the default security file locations and other settings, however, no special configuration is required.

The client machine also requires configuration. See Preparing the Client(s) in Distributed Processing and Preparing the Client(s) in Thin Client for more information.
