How can i connect remotely to Hercules Emulator?

Postby cukazeyita » Tue Aug 28, 2018 12:29 pm

I have installed the MVS TK4- system on debian linux. I want to connect to it remotely.

Currently i can login on the same PC only. What i want is that my MVS should have an IP address and port which i can use to connect to it, from anywhere in the world. Currently i am connecting via

IP ADDRESS: LOCALHOST
PORT: 3270

I have searched the MVS manual. It does not contain the info to do this.
Here is the PDF: http://wotho.ethz.ch/tk4-/MVS_TK4-_v1.00_Users_Manual.pdf

If anyone can show me some direction then i will search the rest on my own. Even a link to some pdf will be fine.

Here is the screenshot of what i am currently doing ( screenshots deleted , the issue is clear enough even without them )

i just want to assign an IP address to it. I think this topic could be part of System programming as well. Posted it here since its not a real mainframe and a simulator.

Any guidance will be of great help.

IP ADDRESS : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx <= the address hosting the TK4 instance
PORT : 3270 <= or whatever You have chosen

mvs 3.8 does not any tcp/ip capability, it relies on the hosting pc connectivity

Is it possible to do this by using some packet capturing software like WinPcap.

The documentation here says that it is possible in Windows: http://www.bsp-gmbh.com/hercules/wingui/ctci-w32-readme.html

We have to install WinPcap. Assign Static IP to our network. Then, we just have to add a line in configuration file to do this.

0E20-0E21   CTCI   192.168.0.4   192.168.0.2


But this is for windows.

Is it possible to do the same on Debian Linux?

NO to everything ....

mvs 3.8 does not any tcp/ip capability,


the 0E20-0E21 definition is for zOS

and ...
do not mix the documentation,
stick to the TK4- docs
