Known Errors

These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E1119: Gline, ETX was added for ASCII IBM 3270

Product: Gline
Platform: All
Status: Fixed for 6.4, fix available for 6.3
Last updated: 2006-06-16 15:11:04

The DSA line module used by Ggate was incorrectly adding an ETX
terminator to blocks transmittedv to GCOS8 mainframes when the
terminal type was an ASCII IBM3270 (3270A). This caused problems when
logging on to non- secure TSS (the USERID and PASSWORD questions),
and in several of the TSS subsystems. This was not a problem in older
releases of GCOS, but TSS is now seeing the terminator, causing the
USERID to be rejected. In secure systems the USERID and PASSWORD
questions are not issued, so log-on is possible, but then some of the
subsystems would return:

   003 is an illegal input character

Note that when using Glink to connect to GCOS8 as an ASCII 3270 the
emulation changes mode depending on the output from the applications.
This is because although the application itself might send 3270
screens that require the 3270 emulation, the TSS subsystems and the
TP8 transaction manager send messages in unformatted mode, and Glink
simply switches to VIP7700 emulation for the necessary dialog steps.
