TPS®/ RJE ( SNA ) is a full-featured Remote Job Entry ( RJE ) implementation that emulates an IBM® 3777 model 4 card punch / reader, providing high-speed, high-volume data transfer between a mainframe / host system and a downstream UNIX® system. TPS®/RJE emulates several IBM® 3777 model 4 workstation devices including card punch, card reader, and console.

TPS®/ RJE ( SNA ) functionality includes the ability to download data, submit data and enter RJE console commands. Mainframe / host data, downloaded from the RJE subsystem ( i.e., JES, JES2, JES3, POWER/VSE, RSCS, and SUPERTRACS ), can be directed to any standard printer connected to a UNIX® system via any standard print command, directed elsewhere, such as scripts, or stored in pre-specified directories for later use. Files can also be submitted to the mainframe / host system and RJE operators can use the RJE to issue console commands. .

TPS®/ RJE ( SNA ) communicates with RJE subsystems on the mainframe / host system such as JES, JES2, JES3, POWER/VSE, RSCS or SUPERTRACS, running under MVS or DOS/VSE. TPS®/ RJE ( SNA ) utilizes SNA functionality of either TPS®/ SNA or various IBM® SNA products.

Although some 3777 capabilities such as hardware switches are not emulated, many additional usability and functionality features are provided.

Do you need an SNA solution to use with TPS®/ RJE? TPS® Systems provides a full featured SNA product. Check out TPS®/ SNA .


  • Lets a UNIX® system emulate an IBM® 3777 model 4 workstation (card punch, card reader, and console)
  • Utilizes the SNA functionality of either TPS®/ SNA, IBM® Communications Manager for AIX®, IBM® SNA Services/6000, AIX® SNA Server/6000
  • Added features for data transfer including compression and compaction.
  • Menu driven configuration for RJE ( Remote Job Entry ) operations
  • Very easy installation and configuration
  • From TPS® Systems — with 25+ year tradition of excellence in providing network software and support for large global enterprises.


TPS®/ RJE (SNA) is an excellent solution when RJE functionality is required on distributed UNIX® platforms. It protects legacy RJE investments while substantially improving RJE usability.

Clients are also using TPS®/ RJE (SNA) as a cost-effective high-speed file transfer mechanism between systems in SNA-dominated WANs.


  • Utilizes TPS®/ SNA or IBM® Communications Manager for AIX®, IBM® SNA Services/6000, or AIX® SNA Server/6000 for the host connection. All host connections supported by SNA can be used by TPS®/ RJE
  • Emulates an operator’s console and up to seven card readers, card punches, printers, or other exchange devices
  • Provides up to six concurrent LU sessions
  • Capable of operation in a background session
  • Provides full-featured menus for all RJE operations
  • Interactive monitoring of LU and output device status
  • Flexible device configuration via setup profiles
  • Indicates reception activity. Incoming files are shown at 0 length in the target directory when reception begins. When reception is complete, the directory then shows the received file’s actual size
    Provides automatic session logon for the LUs by specifying a logon string to be sent to the SSCP upon SSCP-LU activation
  • Provides command support for displaying the status of connections, devices, jobs, and deleting or aborting active jobs
  • Supports transparent input and output data
  • Provides ASCII to EBCDIC and EBCDIC to ASCII translation
  • Supports compression and compaction
  • Supports the SNA Character Strings (SCS) NL, FF, BS, CR, LF, SHF, SVF, HT, VT, VCS, BEL, NUL, TRN, and IRS
  • Supports FMH set 1
  • Supports FM profile 3 and TS profile 3

Operator Control Functions

TPS®/ RJE ( SNA ) lets RJE operators send and receive messages through a console emulation facility – so operators can enter SSCP requests (such as logon and logoff) and application requests (such as JES, JES2, JES3, SUPERTRACS or POWER commands).

TPS®/ RJE (SNA) also provides control functions allowing operators to:

  • Delete a job from the host job queue
  • Cancel the activity of a specified output device which is receiving a job for the host
  • Change the routing for a specified output device, and thus reroute a job to be received from the host
  • Reset the connection to the host
  • Change the virtual page format for data which is to be received from the host
  • Turn logging on and off dynamically

TPS®/SNA ( Systems Network Architecture ) is a full featured SNA implementation for both traditional hierarchical subarea networks ( PU 4 / 5 to PU 2.0 ) and peer-to-peer networks ( PU 2.1 ). LU support includes dependent support for LUs 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 7 and dependent and independent LU support for LU 6.2. TPS®/SNA supports multiple links ( PUs ) and data link types on the same system ( limited only by the number and type of hardware adapters on the system ). Data link types supported include: SDLC, Token Ring, Ethernet, or Data Link Switching - DLSw ( Switch-to-Switch Protocol ).
