Subject: Re: Using CICS client
You can do this without using CICS clients. Ensure that CICS sockets is
anabled in the CICS region you will use and then write your Win95 app as
a normal sockets enabled app, connecting to the IP address of your MVS
system using the port that CICS is listening on. The first message you
send after connection should contain the CICS tranID to start in the
first four bytes, followed by any parameters e.g. sneding 'SC01,2101'
will start tran SC01 and pass 2101 as a parameter. The CICS part of this
is documented in the CICS Sockets Guide. I have done this successfully
using Visual C++ on Win NT, and also have seen it done with Visual Basic
