Difficulty connecting to IBM mainframes with Microsoft TCP/IP utilities such as Telnet and FTP.
IBM mainframes appear to expect the TCP/IP "push" bit to be set on all frames for Telnet and FTP. The Microsoft LAN Manager TCP/IP stack and utilities don't always set the "push" bit by default.
The Microsoft Windows for Workgroups TCP/IP stack recognizes a new PROTOCOL.INI parameter for more reliable Telnet and FTP sessions to IBM mainframes. Add this line to the [tcpip_xif] section:
forcepushbit = 1
