AnyNet: SNA over TCP/IP Installation and Interoperability

An IBM Redbooks publication


This document describes the new implementations of the Multiprotocol
Transport Networking (MPTN) architecture on the MVS, OS/2 and and
AS/400 platforms. It includes SNA over TCP/IP (MVS/ESA and OS/2) and
AnyNet/400 APPC over TCP/IP. They are shipped with the AnyNet/MVS
feature of VTAM Version 4 Release 2 for MVS/ESA and as AnyNet/2 OS/2
program products except AnyNet/400 APPC over TCP/IP. AnyNet/400 APPC
over TCP/IP is shipped with OS/400 Version 3 Release 1.

This document provides working configurations, definitions and test
results. It guides the readers in the planning, methodology,
installation and implementation of their first MPTN network.

It is intended for systems engineers, network managers, application
designers and technical support personnel who are interested in the
implementations of the IBM MPTN architecture.

A basic working knowledge of SNA, TCP/IP and MPTN is assumed.
However, this document also provides a brief introduction to these
