Re: Hercules and Centos - HOWTO get my xwindows going.

Thanks Tim

Sounds like I have some more tinkering to do - I am a little familiar
with VNC so I'll try that first.

And   BTW    Is there some way I can actually use the LOADPARM in a
Centos installation ????

My thinking was I could set the loadparm to a value like HOME or WORK
or WIRELESS and then use this as a 'clue' in the network startup
scripts to setup my Centos to suit the environment I'm IPL'ing in.

Re: Hercules and Centos - HOWTO get my xwindows going.

Well    that didn't take long .....

I started up vncserver on my Centos/390.   Seems to have started
OK----no errors messages at least.

Then  I tried to connect to it from a VNC client running on my Win2000
host.  It is able to get a PuTTY session woring fine so the TCP/IP
side 'should' be OK.

When I try to connect the Win200 VNC Client I get a dialog box with
"unable to connect to host: Connection refused (10061)"

My "netstat -a" from Centos - is (for what it is worth) below the >>>>

I'm at another hurdle  - but have left the starting post   :D

Re: MVS Console and 3270 emulator

1. connect your 3270 terminals as consoles (on resource number 10 & 11).
2. logon from 3270 terminal connection using any of the user like 
(herc01,herc02 etc)
3. write "/*$VS,'V 10,ONLINE'"   (without double quote)
         "/*$VS,'V 10,CONSOLE'"  (without double quote)
   in a member and submit that.

Networking to Hercules-Guest on Windows

Hi, 

I just can't seem to get Networking to work on Windows. I'm already
tearing my hair off because it just won't work. 

I have successfully run hercules on Linux and started to install
debian and suse Linux, no problem with networking there, but I just
cannot get hercules to run on Windows and provide correct networking. 

I read the documentation for ctci-w32 *twice*, I configured hercules
with the following (I'm in a DHCP-Environment, therefore using the
MAC-Address):

0E20-0E21    CTCI    -n 00-12-3F-43-0A-5F 192.168.11.1 0.0.0.0

I set the Registry-Value "IPEnableRouter" to 1 in the registry.

I added a route:
---------------------------------------------------------------
C:\HERCULES\hercules-3.03.1>route print
192.168.11.1  255.255.255.255   192.168.225.72  192.168.225.72       1
---------------------------------------------------------------

winpcap and tuntap are installed, tt32info reports the following:

Re: MVS Console and 3270 emulator

I run into the same problem with the external interrupt not working with my MVS 3.8 system.  However, upon
reconnecting to a TSO session, I have found that running a batch job with the following two steps will
reactivate my console:

//GO10    EXEC PGM=BSPOSCMD,PARM='V 010,ONLINE'  
//GO10C   EXEC PGM=BSPOSCMD,PARM='V 010,CONSOLE'

  Issuing OS commands from the Hercules prompt assumes the OS supports the OPRMSG feature, which is a
relatively recent addition (3090 and ESA+).   In the old days, no console meant a wait-state at IPL, but
since OPRMSG, you can actually run members of a sysplex without dedicated consoles, issuing commands
from a console connected to another member of the plex.  

  Also, on recent systems, if you lost your last console, you could always log on to TSO and issue the vary from
SDSF.  Unfortunately, neither of these help if you're running MVS 3.8.

  THEORETICALLY (according to some manuals I've seen), you can recover from a lost console by connecting a
terminal to one of the defined console addresses, and issuing an "external interrupt" via the Hercules
console.  Unfortunately, this doesn't work reliably (I just tried it, and it didn't).  I've noticed that
often, just reconnecting to the console address and hitting CLEAR, ENTER, or PA2 will get the screen back. 
It depends on what the OS thinks is going on. Sometimes it recognizes the loss of the last console,
sometimes it doesn't.

... what about your Centos iptables rules? Do you tried disable Centos
firewall or (better choice) opening the VNC port for incoming connection?

I'm certainly no expert on this but for Windows I believe the ip address
hercules is going to use has to be on the same subnet as your adapter.
That is, 192.168.225.<something> instead of 192.168.11.1

HHCCP014I CPU0000: Data exception CODE=0007 ILC=4 running z/OS 1.5 on hercules 3.03.1

Hello everybody,

for testing purposes i run z/OS 1.5 under hercules 3.03.1 on Gentoo 
Linux Kernel 2.6.15. I see lots of Data exceptions messages on the herc 
console. They occur usually when executing an STD instruction.
However i can't see any abends in z/OS. Is this normal behavior ? Any 
hints welcome. Below is a screenshot from the hercules console :
