This new and improved Communications Server (CS) for z/OS TCP/IP Implementation series provides easy-to-understand step-by-step how-to guidance on enabling the most commonly used and important functions of CS for z/OS TCP/IP.

In this IBM Redbooks publication we begin by providing an introduction to CS for z/OS TCP/IP. We then discuss the System Resolver showing the implementation of global and local settings for single and multi-stack environments. We then present implementation scenarios for TCP/IP base functions, connectivity, and routing. Finally, we discuss the IP version 6 support available with z/OS V1R7.0 Communications Server.

For more specific information about CS for z/OS standard applications, high availability, and security, please reference the other volumes in the series. These are:

--Communications Server for z/OS V1R7 TCP/IP Implementation, Volume 2 - Standard Applications, SG24-7170
--Communications Server for z/OS V1R7 TCP/IP Implementation, Volume 3 - High Availability, Scalability, and Performance, SG24-7171
--Communications Server for z/OS V1R7 TCP/IP Implementation, Volume 4 - Security, SG24-7172
