The VM (Virtual Machine) operating system
This white paper describes a sample implementation of the NJE/IP Bridge, a product developed by Sine Nomine Associates and marketed by Barnard Software, Inc. The paper describes a sample network, and shows the configuration files and steps necessary to implement the sample network.
fsiucv provides the ability to connect to arbitrary VM CP and CMS IUCV-based services from Linux applications. Each IUCV connection is presented to the Linux system as a device, with semantics similar to that of a serial connection. Data can be read from or written to the IUCV connection using simple shell tools, or can be handled using the standard Unix/POSIX file manipulation tools and APIs. Configuration of the driver is handled using the sysfs interface, and both local and distributed IUCV are supported.

VM Advanced Networking Services is a reference architecture developed by Sine Nomine Associates. It is designed to update the IP-based network applications and services offered by VM systems, using virtual Linux hosts, without disrupting existing CMS applications that rely on the old-style VMTCPIP stack.
