TCP/IP PROTOCOL SUPPORT

If you want to transfer data between multiple workstations running ONSPEC applications under different operating systems like Windows NT, OS/2 and OpenVMS, the TCP/IP protocol must be used.

The following REMOTE INFO entry is an example of how to specify the protocol.

                    ;REMOTE INFO

                    STATION = MASTER1

                    PROTOCOL = TCPIP

                    CLASS = MASTER

                    The HOSTS file is used by LSO to obtain addresses, which is located under the directory WINNT35SYSTEM32DRIVERSETC for Windows NT or WINDOWS for Windows 95. You have to add an entry to the HOSTS file for any computer that will be connected to your computer using TCPIP.

The following is an example HOSTS file that includes three entries.

# IP Address Host Name
128.1.0.51 MASTER1
128.1.0.52 CONSOLE1
128.1.0.53 CONSOLE2
