Hercules 3270 telnet connection first screen

Postby ivans » Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:45 pm

Hi folks,

I finnaly managed to configure Hercules for os/360 but when I telnet with 3270 emulator to my Hercules on the first screen I see this:
___________________________________________
Hercules Version : 3.07
Host name : mypc
Host OS : Windows_NT-6 1
Host Architecture : i686
Processors : MP=2
Chanl Subsys : 0
Device number : 0701
Subchannel : 0001

HHH HHH The S/370, ESA/390 and z/Architecture
HHH HHH Emulator

My PC thinks it's a MAINFRAME
________________________________________________

Which button or combination of keys I must press to move into next window. because this windows seems to be just welcome screen.
I tired to look in the hercules page but can't find such information.

the hercules logo will disappear at the first I/O from the operating system

after IPL
if the 3270 session is the console, You will see the normal ipl message sequence

if the 3270 session is a generic 3270 ( not a console )
the hercules logo will disappear as soon as the node is activated by VTAM

odd that You were not able to find any info ...

here are some useful links

does not make too much difference from a performance point of view
/personal opinion on
on a linux like platform is much easier to build additional tools and extensions
the development environment is already there, under windoze You will have to
install the Visual <thingies> to compile anything
on linux more scripting languages are available perl,python,

on windows XP You have the 3gb limitation for the PC storage seen by winxp

on any decent linux thing with the latest processors You have the advantage
of being able to build a 64 bits executable
there is a bit of debate going about the performance of the various combinatios

32/64 bits guest VS. 32/64 bits hercules executable VS. 32/64 bits kernel mode
( yes on mac leopard/snow leopard a 32 bits kernel can run 64 bits applications )

I am currently running on a mac book pro 64 bits kernel and hercules, 32 bits MVS 3.8

which are all available on Windoze although you will have to obtain them, for free.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

I think you could get them too by using Cygwin
If I told you, Mossad would have to kill you :)

I don't think there are any TCP/IP stacks or OS/360; this may present a problem.

My memory says the only terminal I/O for TSO in OS/360 was a basterdized TCAM interface. I don't know how one would do the terminal I/O.

Cygwin provides an almost full unix emulation layer, a bit complicated to manage

for the most common scripting languages Rexx,Python,Perl, TCL a native windows version is available
sourceforge.net for REXX ( regina, ooRexx )
actvetate.com for Python,TCL,Perl
