The Allowed Directions options for a leased line SDLC connection are available for selection under the SDLC Connection properties dialog in SNA Server Manager. Allowed Directions is used to specify whether the SNA Server, the remote device, or either can initiate the connection.

The Allowed Directions option was greyed out for leased line SDLC connections under SNA Server 2.x because it does not apply for leased lines.


There are no known workarounds, however leased line SDLC connections do not use the Allowed Directions option. This is a cosmetic problem that has not caused any communication problems.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
