BOSaNOVA Advanced Server for SAA

Simple and Reliable Connectivity to Midrange Hosts over the Internet and LANs

Ordering Information

Overview
The Advanced Server for SAA is a complete package for connecting PCs attached to the Internet or corporate LAN to IBM AS/400 or AS/36 hosts.

The Advanced Server for SAA by BOSaNOVA

Supporting the most common LAN protocols – such as TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and NetBIOS – Advanced Server for SAA can be connected to one or more AS/400 or System/3x host systems via Ethernet, Token Ring or direct Twinax (AS/400 only) connection.

By implementing the Advanced Server for SAA solution, organizations gain the cost efficiency and convenience of the Internet, the versatility of the LAN, the ease-of-use of the PC, and the reliability and security of the IBM midrange host.

Advanced Server for SAA is a complete communications solution; all required server and client components are included, as well as feature-rich BOSâNOVA 5250 terminal and printer emulation, file transfer, and other APPC applications.

Advantages

  • Compatible with TCP/IP, IPX/SPX and NetBIOS protocols
  • Allows communication over the Internet (server-to-PC communication)
  • Operates on Windows 9x/NT/2000/Me/XP platform
  • Eliminates need for APPC router
  • Provides traffic encryption between the server and the client workstations for secure access to the host
  • Supports up to 2000 concurrent users and up to 5000 APPC sessions
  • Enables server-to-host communication via Ethernet, Token Ring and Twinax
  • Supports Euro (€) currency symbol
Client/Server Architecture Increases Host Efficiency
By using advanced client/server technology, host resources are freed from mundane communications tasks and are available for the more important task of running your business. Advanced Server for SAA gives real meaning to the phrase "open system" because it is entirely independent of network operating systems, such as Windows NT Server, OS/2 LAN Server, UNIX (file server), or Novell NetWare. In fact, it can be run on a LAN without any network file server at all!

Complete Communications Solution
Advanced Server for SAA is a complete, stand-alone communications solution that can be added to the network before any decisions about network servers are made. In the future, additional Advanced Server for SAA servers can be added regardless of the network server in use. The Advanced Server for SAA includes two components: server and client workstation software.

The Advanced Server for SAA Server runs on a PC using Windows 9x or a Windows NT/2000/Me/XP workstation or server, and does not require any complex installation or setup procedures. The Advanced Server for SAA Workstation client runs on the user's PC and includes emulation software, file transfer and a virtual router eliminating the need to install a resource-draining APPC router.
Flexibility
Using any of the common LAN protocols (TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and NetBIOS), Advanced Server for SAA allows Internet- or LAN-connected PCs to communicate easily with one or more IBM midrange hosts, eliminating the need to install SNA drivers on the workstation. This configuration allows the use of common (non-SNA) bridges and routers on the LAN.

Secure communication is enabled between the server and the client workstation.

Security
Extending the AS/400's standard security, an optional server login procedure may be implemented. In this configuration, all traffic between the server and the client workstation can be encrypted, enabling secure communication over the Internet.
The Server
Advanced Server for SAA's 32- bit server software runs under Windows 9x/Me or a Windows NT/2000/XP workstation or server. By connecting to the AS/400 or AS/36 host system via a LAN or Twinax (AS/400 only) connection, and providing host access to PCs attached to the Internet or a LAN, an SNA communications path is created from the host to every PC on the Internet or LAN.
Note: LAN connection to AS/400 is not supported in Windows Me/XP because DLC protocol is not provided by Microsoft.
The Client
Advanced Server for SAA includes Workstation Client 32 for PCs running Windows 9x/NT/2000/Me/XP, and a Workstation Client 16 for PCs running Windows 3.x. The Workstation Client uses common LAN protocols to communicate with the Advanced Server for SAA Server. Advanced Server for SSA enables PCs connected to the Internet or corporate LANs to access a midrange host.
