The Demo Host

The Demo Host lets you communicate with a simulated host through a series of Rumba conversations previously recorded with the Data Stream Analyzer (DSA) Trace system.

When you use this host, Rumba sends commands to a program emulating a host. The host program responds with the corresponding 5250 data stream segments, based on your keyboard or mouse input.

The Demo Host is especially useful for training purposes. You do not have to configure the host or the session parameters to use the Demo Host.

Important: These fields are initialized with defaults based on data from your current profile, if available, or from system defaults. They are the recommended settings and should not be changed except for special circumstances. Selecting an inappropriate starting state could result in undesirable behavior.
