connecting SNA devices to an IP host

I have experience with connection IP devices to an SNA host. Now I have a requirement to connect a multitude of SNA devices to an IP host. Is there a configuration that would allow me to support LU0, LU1, LU2 and LU6.2 devices connecting to an IP host?


Re: connecting SNA devices to an IP host

There are two solutions I know of.

1. Run SNASw on Cisco routers

LU0,1,2,6.2---SNASw router---HPR/IP---IP host

The connectivity between the LU 0,1,2, 6.2 and SNASw router can be SDLC, token ring, ethernet, and even DLSw. DLUR on the SNASw router accept LU 0, 1, and 2 to connect to the LU 6.2 on the host.

2. Run DLSw on the Host

Certain host supports DLSw. You can establish a DLSw connection from Cisco routers to the IP host. The Cisco routers establish connections to the LU 0,1,2, and 6.2 through SDLC, QLLC, token ring, or ethernet.

Re: connecting SNA devices to an IP host

Can you define your requirement further?

Describe your IP Host:

- What is the system?

- What application are you trying to gain access to
