Z and I Emulator for Windows saves emulator configuration information to a workstation profile (.WS). Depending on your Z and I Emulator for Windows configuration, you might have a workstation profile only or both workstation profile and a configuration file. The workstation profile can be used later by other Z and I Emulator for Windows sessions, or to restart this session.

Configuring Session

To create a new session, follow the steps given below:

  1. From the Start menu, click Programs -> HCL Z and I Emulator for Windows -> Start or Configure Sessions.
  2. In the Session Manager dialog box , click New Session.

The Customize Communication window appears.

  1. Select the type of host from the Type of Host drop-down list box.
  2. Select the interface you will use from the Interface drop-down list box.
  3. Select the attachment type you want to use from the Attachment drop-down list box.
  4. Click Session Parameters to modify the session type (display or printer), host code page, and display/graphics options.

The Session Parameters – 3270, 5250, or ASCII – Host window appears (depending on the host you selected in step 3).

  1. Click OK.
  2. Click Link Parameters.

Enter the appropriate information for each page and click Next to continue and click Finish when you are done.

  1. Click the Host Definition tab to configure the Connection Options.
    • Select Auto-reconnect to reestablish an interrupted connection.
    • The Connection Timeout value tells Z and I Emulator for Windows how long it should wait to connect to the host.
    • The Try connecting to last configured host infinitely option is enabled by default. Clear this box if you do not want Z and I Emulator for Windows to automatically and indefinitely wait for acknowledgement for a connect request from the last correctly configured server/host.
  2. After configuring the session options, click OK in the Telnet tab panel.
  3. Click OK on the Customize Communication window. The session is displayed automatically.
