    1. At the Command prompt specify the command to run on the remote system. When using the RUNCMDS command, you can specify up to 300 commands.

    2. If you are using the RUNCMDS command, you can specify as many as ten escape, notify, or status messages to be monitored for each command. Specify these at the Monitor for messages prompt.

    How to run (protocol)


    Run on local system

    At the Protocol prompt, specify *LOCAL.

    Run using TCP/IP

    Do the following:

    1. At the Protocol prompt, specify *TCP to run the commands using Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) communications. Press Enter for additional prompts.

    2. At the Host name or address prompt, specify the host alias or address of the TCP protocol.

    3. At the Port number or alias prompt, specify the port number or port alias on the local system to communicate with the remote system. This value is a 14-character mixed-case TCP port alias or port number.

  6. Do one of the following:

    • To access additional options, skip to Step 7.

    • To run the commands or monitor for messages, press Enter.

  7. Press F10 (Additional parameters).

  8. At the Check syntax prompt, specify whether to check the syntax of the command only. If *YES is specified, the syntax is checked but the command is not run.

  9. At the Local data area length prompt, specify the amount of the current local data area (LDA) to copy. This is useful for automating application processing that is dependent on the local data area and for passing binary information to command programs.

  10. At the Return LDA prompt, specify whether to return the contents of the local data area (LDA) from the remote system after the commands are run. The value specified in the Local data area length prompt in Step 9 determines how much data is returned.

  11. At the User prompt, specify the user profile to use when the command is run on the remote system.

  12. To run the commands or monitor for messages, press Enter.
