Communication with the SAVRSTOBJ command

Communication with the SAVRSTOBJ command

Is the only communication method for the SAVRSTOBJ command between processors SNA, i.e. APPN/APPC? I would like to move to TCP/IP, but from first trial it does not work.
Yes, SAVRSTOBJ is designed to use an SNA, APPC/APPN connection to another iSeries. You can enable SNA communications over TCP/IP on an iSeries though.

You will need to do the following:

1. Change the Network Attribute ALWANYNET to *YES.
2. Create an APPC controller with LINKTYPE(*ANYNW).
3. Add entries to the APPN remote location list.
4. Map APPC LU name to an Internet address.

Details on this configuration can be found here.

The AnyNet feature isn't perfect, though. There can be issues such as disconnecting sessions and slow performance over wide area networks when transporting large amounts of data. If you plan to use this scenario to move relatively small objects between system, you should be fine. Give it a try and see if it works in your environment.
