Host Connectivity

Connect your host to normally incompatible destinations

Host Connectivity header

Being unable to connect a mainframe or server to certain destinations such as networks, printers, workstations and the e-Environment (email, Web and fax) is a common problem. Furthermore, the data format native to the host maybe incompatible with the destination, magnifying the connectivity problem even more.

For these reasons you may be restricted to using the same connection type and data format when connecting your host to a destination. As a result, you are unable to benefit from the latest destination technology and sharing your host data with other businesses processes and applications is difficult or impossible.

To address this problem, IDS can provide you with a solution to attach your host to one or more normally incompatible destinations and correctly convert the data that passes between the two.
