    system, and is intended for system programmers who are new to an OS/390


    In this Volume, Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the basics of

    mainframe networking concepts, including hardware connectivity, OSA/SF,

    SecureWay Communication Server,

    Chapter 2 describes OS/390 security with RACF.

    Chapter 3 provides on overview of OS/390 UNIX System Services.

    Chapter 5 describes the Infoprint Server which is an optional feature of

    OS/390 Version 2 Release 8 that uses OS/390 UNIX System Services. This
