I'm connecting to a mainframe from our rs6000 using smit and hcon and the
application programing interface. I'm using api/3270 so that from the
rs6000 I can logon to an IMS session and send and recieve data to and from
So, I start a session, lets call it "b" using the e789 b command.
Then from my C program I link into that session and send characters at it.
This works fine.
But what if I want several users to link into this same session.
I could create a new session for each user each time they want to do somthing
on the mainframe. However the login and getting to the particular application
on the mainframe that I want to get to can be very time consuming.
The ideal solution would to have the one session that is always logged
into the application. When ever a user wants to do somthing they just
link into that session.
Basically, what I want to know is if multiple users can link into the same
hcon session and if so how do you do it ????
