UTS connection settings

In addition to the Common connection settings, UTS hosts require these additional settings:

UTS INT1 session configuration options

UTS INT1 options Description
Application The name of the host application or host operating mode to be accessed.
This is the word or phrase that the local machine sends to the host when you first establish communication with the host. If you were using a host terminal, this would be the $$OPEN name of the application.The application name is typically the same as the environment name. However, they can be different. For example, the environment name might be MAPPER, and the application might be UDSSRC. During a terminal emulation session, you would type $$OPEN MAPPER at the prompt, and INT1 would send UDSSRC to the host once the connection is established.
TSAP The desired Transport Service Access Point (TSAP), up to 32 characters (such as TIPCSU for TIP connections, RSDCSU for Demand connections).A TSAP is required only if you are connecting to a Host LAN Controller (HLC) or to a Distributed Communications Processor (DCP) in IP router mode. If you're not sure which value to use, contact your host administrator.
Initial transaction The character, word, or phrase that the local machine will send to the host when communication with the host is first established (up to 15 characters).This parameter is optional and is primarily used with TIP. For example, you might type ^ to run MAPPER. This parameter can also be used to transmit passwords.
Start transaction When you configure an initial transaction, by default, the data is sent as soon as the session connection is established. You can decide when to send an initial transaction by using a particular string to trigger the initial transaction.
For example, to wait for a successful login before sending initial transaction data, type in a string to be used to identify a successful login.
You can use this setting in combination with Send initial transaction.
Send initial transaction You can determine when the initial transaction is sent:
  • Immediately - Default.
  • When start of entry (SOE) character is received - Useful when multi-line transactions must be completed before sending the string.
  • After specified milliseconds
Terminal ID Choose options to specify a terminal ID or to use the Terminal ID Manager. To specify a terminal ID, type it in the Specify Terminal ID field.
  • Specify Terminal ID
    The Terminal ID, a terminal identifier (typically up to 8 alphanumeric characters) to use for the communication session associated with this path. Also known as a TID or PID, each terminal ID should be unique to the host.
  • Prompt the User if ID not Specified
    The end user will be prompted the first time a connection is attempted after which the value is saved. The saved value will continue to be used without additional prompting.
  • Always prompt the user for ID
    When you select this option the end user will be prompted for the terminal ID each time a connection is attempted.
  • Use Terminal ID Manager
    If you choose Use Terminal ID Manager, you are prompted to select the Terminal ID attributes you want to use to obtain an ID. See Terminal ID Manager Attributes.
