Hi Team.

Recently I recieved a document from my senior and we have lot of things to do in that. I am not able to figure what we can do for that.
Can you please clarify how can we achieve below thing which is one of those points.

"All existing or legacy applications that utilize hard-coded IP addresses need to be converted to using only dynamically translated IP addresses."


Thanks,
Pa1

Are you system/network administrator?

If yes - You should know what to do.
If not - Let them take care of the issue.

If you use ISPF workstation facility, read the fine manual regarding dynamic IP address for workstation (there are few interesting discussions in Google regarding the issue).

Hi ,

I am not the system administrator..

This requirement is sent to us and the expectation is , we have to remove all the Hard coded Ip addresses in my COBOL programs/JCL's/PROCS.

So, need your comments.

Thanks,
Pa1

Hello,

Ok, but someone needs to provide direction on what to replace them with.

What is the function these programs?

Why is this a confusing specification? It is simply a replacement of hard coded IP addresses with DNS look ups. It isn't necessarily trivial to do, but it should be pretty easy to understand.

Hello,

If this is what i suspect, it may not be a dns issue. . .

Many of the places i've been in the past used hard-wired ip addresses for terminal connections. If the cobol code is looking at ip addresses to identify user connections, they are probably not in dns.

Probably, a better question would be - how is the ip address used in these programs?

Good point. I assumed server access.

Hi Dick ,

We are using these Ip addresses(in JCL's) for accessing servers.

Thanks,

Hello,

Then hopefully your requirement can be met with DNS as MBabu suggested.
