At many sites, this software is already available and running on a Unix and/or Windows system. X11 software is available from commercial and shareware sites, such as the examples below.

All SAS 9.2 Supported Platforms:

  • Xming - If you use Xming, you must set the host name of your z/OS box in the X0.hosts file in the Xming install directory, and then start Xming before starting either esdclient.zos or setup.rexx on z/OS.
  • Cygwin/X - (not tested with download tools).
  • Exceed Freedom - From Open Text Connectivity Solutions Group (formerly known as Hummingbird).

All SAS 9.2 Supported Unix Platforms:
An X11 server is typically delivered with the system. Make sure you have connectivity between the Unix and Z/OS system using TCP/IP or other networking protocols.
