  1. NET is available for transport to a broker running under mainframe platforms only; not to a broker running under UNIX or Windows.
  2. Under z/OS, use IBM's Application Transparent Transport Layer Security (AT-TLS). Refer to the IBM documentation for more information. See also SSL/TLS, HTTP(S), and Certificates with EntireX.
  3. Tracing and transport timeout are not supported in this environment.
  4. Stub broker32.dll is supported for reasons of backward compatibility. The functionality is identical to broker.dll.
  5. Via EntireX Broker HTTP(S) Agent; see Broker HTTP(S) Agent (UNIX | Windows).
  6. Under z/VSE, use BSI's Automatic Transport Layer Security (ATLS). Refer to the BSI SSL Installation, Programming and User's Guide. See also SSL/TLS, HTTP(S), and Certificates with EntireX.
