IBM SNA Interoperability Concepts
The Microsoft solution for integration with IBM host systems is Microsoft® SNA Server. To effectively use SNA Server, you need to understand the IBM mainframe and AS/400 host networking environments. IBM Systems Network Architecture (SNA) and Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN) define the protocols used in traditional IBM host networks. SNA Server embraces these IBM networking protocols and additional technologies and standards that allow interoperability between Microsoft® Windows® 2000–based networks and IBM host data, applications, and network management systems.
