Integrate Secure Mainframes in Client/Server Architectures with HOBCOM
HOBCOM is a server software for mainframes. As a link between SNA applications and TCP/IP (terminals and printers), it makes hosts available for modern client/server environments. Numerous functions improve the use of PCs, Thin Clients, terminals and printers. Traditional data inventories and legacy applications in an SNA environment can also be used without costly reorganization. Comprehensive TCP/IP support enables host connections over the Internet and Intranet. Also, with HOBCOM one can use a TCP/IP network, e.g., the Internet.
HOBCOM provides for a convenient management of printer networks: The solution supports a multitude of print protocols and enables a conversion of the print data. As a printer server, HOBCOM can even receive print data outside of the SNA environment and forward them to configured printers, whereby if there are differing print protocols the data are converted.
