Configuration Example

Carry out the configuration using the program snapconfig. This program offers you a pull-down menu. Proceed from left to right and from top to bottom. If you need help, press the F1 key.

You must configure the following parameters:

You will find detailed information on configuration in the following guides:

You will find the required parameters in the following topics, together with examples of values for connecting a HP 9000 to an IBM mainframe (with the R/2 System) via a Token Ring and an SDLC connection.
