    Issue:

    How to configure Workstation ID ( Device Name) in CETerm

     

    Scenario:

    Workstation ID is synonymously used with the term "Device Number" or "LU Number". It represents a dedicated LU name or number on the AS/400 5250 server that you want your 5250 sessions to connect through. Device names are used within IBM SNA world to optimize management of host connection resources. A device name may be associated with an “LU pool” or a specific LU. Device names may also be allocated when connecting to an IBM host through an intermediate gateway. The default setting is blank.

     

    Resolution:

    In CETerm you can configure this setting under:

    Session -> Configure -> Connection (tab) -> Advanced -> IBM Options -> Device / LU#.

    *When configured, CETerm will request this specific (named) resource during connection negotiation.

    *Upon a successful connection, the 5250 host application may display the Device# on the screen to identify the terminal.
