Implementing TCP/IP on z/OS

Code: TCPZ

Description

The course will provide delegates with a detailed plan for the implementation of TCP/IP.

Audience

This course is designed for system programmers who will be responsible for implementing TCP/IP on z/OS.

Prerequisites

Delegates are expected to be familiar with:

  • TCP/IP
  • z/OS
  • TSO/ISPF
  • UNIX Services on z/OS
  • General UNIX user facilities

Objectives

During this course delegates will be involved with class exercises, such as configuring a TCP/IP stack on z/OS including a network interface, telnet and ftp.
