HIS to CICS over TCP/IP - what pieces do I need?

HIS to CICS over TCP/IP - what pieces do I need?

HIS to CICS over TCP/IP - what pieces do I need?

We currently have a APPC/CPI/C app that talks to our M/F over token ring/SNA (APP==>HIS==>token ring==>3274==>VTAM==>CICS).

We installed a new mainframe that doesn't have a 3274 - it's connected directly to our company LAN over TCP/IP. We need to connect our app to the new m/f. Can someone detail the pieces of the puzzle at the Windows server and the m/f that accomplish the connection? People have thrown out things like "IBM Enterprise Extender", but we're trying to see if we can do this without adding too much complexity.

RE: HIS to CICS over TCP/IP - what pieces do I need?

Are you using Microsoft SNA Server now?

Microsoft is releasing HIS (Host Integration Server) 2004. This product will support something called IP/DLC which will allow you to communicate via IP to the Host.

Please reply if you need more information. This product is in Beta right now I think.
