Chapter 1. Welcome to Personal CommunicationsPersonal Communications brings the power of personal networking to yourworkstation by exploiting networking capabilities to provide a variety ofconnectivity options supporting local area network (LAN) and wide area network(WAN) environments. Whether it is for host terminal emulation, client/serverapplications, or connectivity, Personal Communications offers a robust set ofcommunication, networking, and administrative features.Personal Communications is a full-function emulator. In addition to host terminalemulation, it provides these useful features:v File transferv Dynamic configurationv An easy-to-use graphical interfacev Emulator APIs such as Emulator High-Level Language Programming Interface(EHLLAPI), Host Access Class Library (HACL), and PCSAPI. For example,EHLLAPI is often used for automated operator applications which read hostscreens and enter keystrokes without direct user intervention. Refer to EmulatorProgramming and Host Access Class Library for details.A variety of SNA-based client application programming interfaces (APIs) aresupported by Personal Communications. You can create applications that use thepeer-to-peer client APIs, which are based on LU 6.2 and provided by PersonalCommunications. These APIs let you simultaneously access and processinformation on peer workstations.Personal Communications supports Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN) asan end node, and uses the advanced network features: high-performance routing(HPR) and dependent LU requester (DLUR).AnyNet SNA over TCP/IP is a feature of Personal Communications which allowsemulator and client/server SNA applications to communicate over a TCP/IPnetwork.Enterprise Extender allows you to extend the reach of SNA applications and datato include IP networks and IP-attached clients with similar levels of reliability,scalability, and control as SNA users. Personal Communications supports theEnterprise Extender (EE) DLC. What's New in Personal Communications Version 14.0Personal Communications Version 14.0 is based on the popular PersonalCommunications Version 6.0. If you are familiar with Personal CommunicationsVersion 6.0, you might want to review the following new functions andenhancements.64-Bit PCOMMSupport for 64-Bit PCOMMStarting from version 14.0, 64-bit version of PCOMM will be supported sothat PCOMM can run as a native 64-bit application on all supported 64-bitWindows OS. Switching to 64-bit offers various performance advantages as Copyright IBM Corp. 1989, 20193

well as better interoperability/integration with other applications as moreand more applications are being ported to 64-bit. Notes:1. Both PCOMM 32-bit and 64-bit versions cannot be installed on thesame machine at a time. 2. Functions like API, Automation that were previously supported using32-bit applications (eg. MS office 32-bit) will now require 64-bitapplications to support the same functions in 64-bit PCOMM. Forexample, automation will work only using 64-bit version of MS Office. For details regarding the changes in IBM Personal Communications for 64-bitPCOMM, and the list of unsupported features, see “Updates for 64-BitPCOMM” on page 20.Installer enhancements Panel addition to the PCOMM Installer As part of Managed IBM Personal Communications (PCOMM) feature, anew panel has been added to the IBM Personal Communications Installer,where a user can provide the HACP Server configuration details in theinstallation panel. Here are the configuration parameters, 1. Web Server Details : The URL of the Web Server from where IBMPersonal Communications fix pack file will be downloaded forinstallation. Installer or fix pack will be installed on the system by"Start or Configure Sessions - Online" program. 2. Config Server : DNS Name or IP address of the HACP server, wherethe User profiles are stored in a centralized location. 3. Config Server Port : The port that is used to connect to the HACPserver. The HACP server configuration is optional only, user can click next to skipthe configuration and can configure this through "Preferences" utility postinstallation.Auto-Update of IBM Personal Communications (PCOMM): Starting from version 14.0, automatic upgrade of PCOMM will besupported. HACP administrators can manage the upgradation of PCOMMclients by placing the upgrade configuration file in the Web Server, whichhas the information of recommended fix-packs or refresh packs that areavailable on the Web Server. The Web Sever URL can be provided duringinstallation or can be configured via the "Preferences" utility. When a User invokes the "Start or Configure Sessions - Online", theapplication checks if the installed version of PCOMM is lower than therecommended version. If the PCOMM installed on the system is of a lowerversion, the User gets a notification of the latest available PCOMM version.The User can either choose to upgrade or decline the upgrade option. Note: The upgrade configuration file is unique for every refresh packinstaller and is shipped along with the Fixpack package.4Quick Beginnings

Session Manager OnlineIntroducing Session Manager in Online ModePersonal Communications uses the Session Manager Online dialog toprovide easy access to workstation profiles and batch files on HACPServer. You can use the Session Manager Online to start a single ormultiple sessions, and create a new session or batch file. Workstationprofiles and batch files are stored on HACP Server. User can create user onHACP Server, Logon to HACP Server and migrate the existing files toHACP Server. Auto-upgrade to later version Personal Communications issupported on Session Manager Online.PreferencesChanges to the PreferencesHACP Server Configuration is added under the 'Advanced' Tab. Users canconfigure the 'Web Server URL', where Personal Communications patchinstaller would be available for auto-upgrade. User can also configureHACP server and port where the user’s Workstation profiles and batchfiles are maintained.Personal Communications Program IconsWhen you have installed Personal Communications, the main functions that youcan use are displayed as icons. Icons are grouped in subfolders of the IBMPersonal Communications program folder.A brief explanation of each function follows:Start or Configure SessionsUse this icon to bring up the Session Manager. This dialog allows you tostart or configure sessions. During configuration, you can specify thesession type, screen size, LU number, graphics support, the type ofcommunication link and its parameters, as well as other information. Youcan save all this information in a workstation profile. After saving, you canstart the session by just clicking the session icon. Authorized users can alsocreate new batch files from this dialogStart or Configure Sessions OnlineUse this icon to bring up the Session Manager Online. This dialog allowsyou to manage and use the online sessions available on HACP Server. Thisprovides option for auto install of Personal Communication available onHACP Server. SNA Node Configuration (32-bit only)Use this icon to configure an SNA node and associated resources or tochange advanced configuration parameters.
