How to disable all transmissions going in and out of an XCOM for z/OS server.
Release 12.0 has a new feature that gives you the ability to disable locally and/or remotely initiated transfers on servers. The parameter which controls which transfer types the server can process is TRANSFERS_ALLOWED. This parameter is used to enable or disable processing of locally or remotely initiated transfers. The value of the parameter can also be modified at any time by issuing the DFLT,TRANSFERS_ALLOWED command on the CA XCOM Data Transport server.
With release 11.6:
1. You can keep transmissions from coming in by bringing up XCOM on a different port.
2. You can customize exit07 to block outgoing sends and receives from the server.
See additional information in the XCOM 12.0 Wiki on how to use the new feature to Allow for Control of Which Transfer Types are Processed.
