I have been asked to find a way to trigger events on the MF from non-mainframe systems. Users on a Linux system would like to be able to start and stop test CICS regions on demand. So I am looking for a way to receive communication from the external Linux systems. My first thought is SNMP, I have ENF SNMP running, I'm not familiar enough with it to know if it can receive inbound SNMP traps and create a log message. If any one has a thought or process currently in us, I would appreciate suggestions.
