The Netmaster Using Guide explains

Telnet Activity in the Log

The Telnet connections can be logged as they are started and ended.

Note: Logging of Telnet activity is specified in the IPEVENT parameter group. For more information, see Implementing .

Example: Telnet Messages

These examples show the Telnet connection start and end messages:

IPCM2002 TELNET CONNECTION STARTED FROM 192.168.2.66..4925 AS TSTCP007 TO TEST1 LOGICAL DEVICE 0006
IPCM2003 TELNET CONNECTION ENDED FROM 192.168.6.127 AS TSTCP006 TO TEST4, BYTES IN 550 OUT 32665 DURATION 0 DAYS 00.06.35

A logged connection start message contains the following information:

  • Time that the connection started
  • Port number, LU, and device number used

A logged connection end message contains the following information:

  • Time that the connection ended
  • IP address and LU name of the device where the connection ended
  • Application to which the session was connected
  • Number of bytes in and out
  • Duration of the connection
 

 
Resolution:
As noted in the Users Guide, whether or not the messages are written to the log is controlled by /PARMS IPEVENT.
