Question - Connecting back to disconnected sessions - iSeries Published by: Puga Sankara on 12 Dec 2015 view comments(1)

Hello,

Is there anyway you guys can help with this question? 
Is there any way I can connect back to a session that is disconnected from the client, however it is still running in the Server.
I am doing a Telnet connect from the client.
 
Basically this user is logged on to a session through Telnet and due to weak wifi signal gets disconnected.
Now the client is disconnected, however the job is still running in the server.
Is there a way the user can log back to the same session and job that he was on and continue from where he left off?
 
Many thanks for the help.
 
Best Regards
Puga

To reconnect the device ID have to match the prior session. If it doesn't, it won't connect to the old session. There is also a time limit on how long it'll go before you can no longer connect.
