Hi,

  I have a littile confusion over the WRKCFGSTS (*CTL ,*LIN,*ETH,*DEV) XXX.

  What are the main Responsibilities of Controllers,Lines AND Ethernet in maintaining good AS/400. environment.

Answer Wiki

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

At least through V5R4 the options available on wrkcfgsts are:
Specify Value for Parameter CFGTYPE

Type choice, press Enter.

Type . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

*NWS
*NWI
*LIN
*CTL
*DEV

*NWS are Windows servers hosted on your iSeries.
*NWI are hosted Windows servers interfaces

*LIN are any communication line whether a line configuration attached to a Ethernet NIC or a .x25 or a *BSC moden line.

*CTL can be a local workstation controller, a virtual controller or a com controller attached to any line type. Local and virtual controllers may stand alone. But for most external com they will be attached to a line. For example an active ethernet nic has a line configuration that sets the line parameters, speed, logging, name, error handling ect. Attached to that is a controller that is actually a ‘driver’ for the TCPIP listener that lets the TCP stack know to listen to TCPIP com request through that NIC.

*DEV may be attached to most controller types, and again is a program driver specific to a device or communication type and will often (like the controller) reflect the name of the remote device it communicates with. *DEV and *CTL have a next level configuration type that indicate whether it is local, remote, LAN, lcl or rmt workstation, tape, modem and so on.

    Sorry, but that is over simplified already. Any more plain and it becomes meaningless gibberish. Language is 90% of system adminstration. Imprecision in the technical language of IT leads causes errors.
