iSeries Connection Configuration Utility

The iSeries Connection Configuration Utility is used to define connections to each iSeries, eServer™ i5, or System i5® host that will use the data transfer function. The connection definitions are saved in an .NDC file in ASCII format.

You can use this utility for TCP/IP connections.

For more information on Data Transfer see Data Transfer.

To use the utility, click Start → Programs → HCL Z and I Emulator for Windows → Utilities → iSeries Connection Configuration; the resulting iSeries, eServer i5, or System i5 configuration screen has the following options:
