CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Edward Gorga, Principal Support Engineer for April 9, 2013.


Starting with CA IDMS release 17.0, support for TCP/IP has been enhanced by enabling the TCP/IP runtime environment to be defined independently from a socket line.
For full details on how to define the new TCP/IP entity in the SYSGEN refer to the CA IDMS r17.0 Release Summary, Chapter 6. TCP/IP, section 6.3 New TCP/IP System Entity.

Here is an example of the TCP/IP entity definition:

[color=#732cee][font=Courier New]ADD TCP/IP
STATUS IS ON
TCP_NODELAY OPTION IS OFF
STACK IS DEFAULT
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF SOCKETS IS DEFAULT
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF SOCKETS PER TASK IS DEFAULT
PLUGIN MODULE IS RHDCD1IP
SERVICES FILE IS OFF.[font]
[color]

If you get the following warning message at startup it means the TCP/IP entity has not been defined:

DC088029 Warning: TCP/IP support enabled for compatibility with r16.

It is recommended that you define the new TCP/IP SYSGEN entity to allow you to use all the different TCP/IP features supported by IDMS like the new DCMT V TCPIP command.
