MIMIX has the ability to use native TCP/IP communications over sockets. This allows users with TCP communications on their networks to use MIMIX without requiring the use of IBM ANYNET through SNA.

Using TCP/IP communications may or may not improve your CPU usage, but if your primary communications protocol is TCP/IP, this can simplify your network configuration.

Native TCP/IP communications allow MIMIX users greater flexibility and provides another option in the communications available for use on their IBM Power™ Systems. Preparing your system to use TCP/IP communications with MIMIX requires the following:

  1. Configure both systems to use TCP/IP. The procedure for configuring a system to use TCP/IP is documented in the information included with the IBM i software. Refer to the IBM TCP/IP Fastpath Setup book, SC41-5430, and follow the instructions to configure the system to use TCP/IP communications.

  2. If you need to use port aliases, do the following:

    a.Refer to the examples Port aliases-simple example and Port aliases-complex example.

    b.Create the port aliases for each system using the procedure in topic Creating port aliases.

  3. Once the system-level communication is configured, you can begin the MIMIX configuration process.
