SNA access server for Microsoft Windows

The HP SNA Access Server for Microsoft Windows is a layered software product that works with the Microsoft Host Integration Server.

The Access Server has two components that are implemented as Microsoft Services:

  • APPC service, which supports HP's OpenVMS SNA LU6.2 applications
  • Basic service, which supports HP's layered SNA applications that are not LU6.2 based, such as 3270 terminal emulation or print emulation

Those two services provide the means for HP's OpenVMS SNA applications to use a Microsoft Host Integration Server for connectivity to IBM SNA-based systems.


  • Protects investments in HP SNA access routines
  • Eliminates rewriting of applications and retraining of personnel
  • Easily configured and managed
  • Provides tools for problem isolation and determination
  • Provides users with multiple connectivity options including SDLC, Token Ring, X.25, Ethernet, and FDDI
