System/36 Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN) provides highly dynamic, fully distributed peer networking for low-end processors. It is built upon existing SNA Logical Unit 6.2 and Node type 2.1 support. APPN presents System/36 users with a simplified model of communications. The structure of the APPN subsystem is outlined, with particular emphasis on the integration of APPN functions with existing SNA support. The authors describe how particular aspects of the APPN design have been tuned to the System/36 operating environment.
