General - AS/400 Communications Direct TCP/IP

Using Extra! you can communicate with an AS/400 via a TCP/IP protocol. Extra! supports TCP/IP software of major network vendors who support the Windows Sockets (WinSock) 1.1 specification.

Use this dialog box to define basic options for this type of connection. You will need to know the Host alias name or IP address and the port number to set up your connection properly.



Host name

Sets the host link for the current network connection. Type the host name or select one from the list.

Host alias / IP address

Sets either the numeric IP address or the alias name of the remote host. This option is case-sensitive. If the Host Name has been entered, the system detects the IP address from the network and displays automatically.
