Dear All,

As we know SNA is the mainly protocol of mainframe connection. But z/OS is also support TCP/IP protocol. Thus, my question is: Is there any way to connect z/OS (on mainframe platform) and Linux (on open platform) by TCP/IP?

Thanks.

What do you mean by "connect"? You can FTP between the systems, you can use REXEC from the mainframe to the Linux machine (assuming everything is set up correctly), and there are other interactions possible between the machines -- so they are already "connected" in many ways.

Sorry for my vague expression. The connect here means the connection of transaction. In another word, how to use TCP/IP instead of SNA connect mainframe and open platform?

that' s the only way ( TCP/IP) Linux does not support SNA
and "how to" is a bit long to explain on a forum
