This chapter describes the procedure for installing the PMDF-XGS transport bridge component. The PMDF-XGS transport bridge component runs on a transport bridge system and connects the actual PMDF-MTA/PMDF-XGS system on one side with the SNADS world on the other side; it converts between TCP/IP message packets when communicating with the PMDF-MTA/PMDF-XGS system and SNADS distributions when communicating with the SNADS side. For instructions on installing PMDF-XGS itself on the PMDF-MTA system, see Chapter 1; for a description and example of configuring PMDF-XGS on the PMDF-MTA/PMDF-XGS system, see Chapter 14 and Chapter 15.
The PMDF-XGS transport bridge component is included on the PMDF distribution CD-ROM. This is an ISO standard CD-ROM readable from many different platforms, including Tru64 UNIX, OS/2, and NT.
For more details on the purpose and operation of programs on the PMDF-XGS transport bridge, and on its various configuration options, see PMDF System Manager's Guide.
