    This IBM Redbooks publication will help you to install, tailor, and configure the IBM Communication Controller for Linux on System z (CCL) V1.2.1. It focuses on the migration of IBM 3745/46 hardware functions and the IBM Network Control Program (NCP) to a CCL environment, and gives easy-to-understand, step-by-step guidance.

    The publication provides information to assist you with the planning, implementation, and setup of OSA-Express, Linux, and CCL, and describes helpful utilities and commands that you can use to monitor and operate the CCL environment. Using realistic scenarios, it also explains the changes that are necessary to NCP and VTAM definitions to support CCL.

    The target audience for this book includes system engineers, network administrators, and systems programmers who will plan for and install CCL V1.2.1. Readers should have a solid background in SNA networking (VTAM and NCP) and Linux operating systems, as well as OSA-Express setup and OSA/SF usage.
