Step 3: Configuring the Connection

  1. Select the local Server in the Servers and Connections window which you have just configured in Steps 1 and 2 above.
  2. In the Services menu choose New Connection which then displays the Insert Connection dialog box.
  3. Select the type of connection, in this case 802.2.
  4. Choose OK at which point the Connection Properties dialog box will appear.
  5. Fill in the Connection Name with a name up to 8 characters long which will describe the connection, e.g. the destination of the connection.
  6. Select the Link Service SnaDlc1, this is the protocol which will be used to access the network adapter.
  7. For the Remote End select Host System.
  8. Set the Allowed Directions to both Incoming and Outgoing.
  9. Set the Activation to By Administrator initially. This can be changed to On Demand or At Server Startup later when we are sure that the connection is configured correctly.
