Parameter Description

System Name Lists all the currently configured systems. Click the down arrow to select a system.
Set Default Designates the selected system as your default connection, which will be used automatically unless another system is selected before connecting. The Default System is displayed in the System Name list with an asterisk (*).
Add Configures a new connection. The new connection will be displayed in the System Name list after you have added it.

Session Information Use the controls in this group to specify how user information for this session is specified.
Auto sign-on When you check this box, your connection information is used for the host sign-on.
Device Name You can add an optional device name that will override the default device name used for this session.

In most cases, the device name defaults to your PC system name followed by S1 or P1. Instead of using the default, you can enter a device name which the AS/400 uses to recognize this session.

PC Information Lists the information that is used when connecting your PC with the AS/400.

Network Name Add the name of the network you are using to connect. For example, you may be using APPN.

On the AS/400, this corresponds to the local network ID, and can be up to eight characters, including A-Z, 0-9, @, #, and $. This identifies the AS/400 on the network.

You can find step-by-step procedures for configuring individual interfaces and link/connection types in the online Help.

The interface Help files are a self-contained unit with information on requisite stacks, configuration procedures, and troubleshooting information (including most error messages associated with an interface). When necessary, the Help also assists you in locating values for interface parameters defining the local PC and the remote host.
