Defining a Communications Line

To define the line groups and lines of the workstations which you want to insert in the network, code the corresponding GROUP and LINE instructions (statements).

As the R/2 workstation software can be installed both for SDLC connections and LAN/gateway, you must define the group lines and nodes accordingly. The following examples show you how to define the R/2 workstation software for SDLC or LAN connections.

In this example an SDLC communications line is defined for the PU (physical unit) PTRJA0.

GRST GROUP ANS=CONTINUE,
DLOGMOD=LU62SAP1,
LNCTL=SDLC,
MAXOUT=7,
MAXPU=7,
MODETAB=LU62TAB,
:
LNST LINE ADDRESS = (03,FULL)
:

SAP uses the Mode name LU62SAP1. If it is necessary to change the Mode names, then the parameter entries for DLOGMOD and MODETAB must correspond to the parameter entry for Logmode and the Logmode Table in VTAM.
