AcuConnect Thin Client: how to use IPv6 addresses

Problem

Is it possible to use Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) with AcuConnect Thin Client?

Resolution

Yes, this is possible starting with ACUCOBOL-GT version 10.0.0.

These are the requirements to set on the Server side:

- configure the Firewall to allow the dialogue between machines with IPv6

- install AcuConnect Thin Client 10.x.x

- turn on the variable AGS_USE_IPV6 in the configuration file for AcuRCL (acurcl.cfg)

- start AcuRCL

- verify the IPv6 address of the server, for example using the DOS tool "ipconfig"
The output should be something like:

Ethernet adapter XYZ:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : domain-name
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::30e8:2ad5:8a5:c2ef
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.120.73.162
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.120.73.254


On the Client side:

- set AGS_USE_IPV6=1 on each client machine that will connect to the server
This variable can be set either in the user/system environment of the desktop, or in the script that launches acuthin.exe.

- use the following syntax if AcuRCL is running on the default port 5632:

acuthin fe80::30e8:2ad5:8a5:c2ef tour

- otherwise, use the following syntax, enclosing the IPv6 address between brackets and adding the AcuRCL port at the end of the string:

acuthin [fe80::30e8:2ad5:8a5:c2ef]:5699 tour
(where 5699 is the port value used by AcuRCL)
