The speaker will be Mr. Alan Altmark of the IBM Corporation.
Alan Altmark joined IBM in 1982 as a member of CMS Development, working on CMS internals, GCS, and the CMS Shared File System. In 1987 he transferred to VM System Test, with an emphasis on native, SNA, and TCP/IP communications.

Alan has been a frequent presenter at VM Technical Conferences and is the IBM liason to the Metropolitan VM Users Association.

TCP/IP is a critical part of any system's connection to the outside world. VM is no exception. Come and hear IBM talk about the version of TCP/IP that is included with VM/ESA Version 2 Release 3. Significant changes have been made to ordering, installation, configuration, and function. This is a "must see" session for anyone who plans to use TCP/IP with VM/ESA Version 2 Release 3.
