This course gives you the skill required to diagnose and debug TCP/IP problems when operating on z/OS. This skill consists of commands and tools, knowledge and a method to approach TCP/IP problems. The lab activity and the paper projects will provide some real problems to debug.

Suitable for any personnel that has to operate on TCP/IP networks and provide support to solve communication problems on OS/390.

The main objectives for the students that attend this course are:

Learn what commands are useful in OS/390 environment to control the TCP/IP resources, the TELNET application and debug TCP/IP simple network problems.

Learn which trace types (Packet, TELNET, FTP and so forth) are available in OS/390 environment and understand:

  • What kind of information can be found in a Trace
  • When and how to activate a trace
  • How to interpret a trace
  • Use the proper diagnostic technique to approach TCP/IP problems:
  • Describe the Syslog function in the UNIX environment and know how to configure the /etc/syslog.conf file
  • Use TCP/IP applications during a connection with hosts that use ASCII character coding.
  • Perform some practical activity that consist in activating and interpreting some trace types,and debug some real problems concerning various application protocols.
