Adapter Description : Microsoft SNA Server is a suite of integrated services that provides access to mainframe data and application resources from a client workstation. SNA Server provides the necessary mainframe connectivity and integrates the desktop environment with an IBM mainframe system to support line-of-business applications that require services such as online transaction processing and Web access.
SNA Server acts as an SNA gateway for the enterprise and integrates the Windows NT Server systems on a LAN or WAN with IBM mainframe and AS/400 mainframe systems using two types of connections:
Server-to-Mainframe Provides the physical connections (Physical Units) and logical connections (Logical Units) between the SNA Server and the mainframe system.
Client-to-Server Provides the client/server network connections to the non-SNA systems on the LAN or WAN, such as workstations or server applications, that require access to SNA applications. The InfoLibrarian Universal File Adapter™ can be used to access mainframe and AS400 files via the Microsoft SNA Gateway Server.
