Abstract

   This draft describes the interface to the IBM 5250 Telnet server that
   allows client Telnet to request a Telnet terminal or printer session
   using a specific device name.  If a requested device name is not
   available, a method to retry the request using a new device name is
   described.  Methods to request specific Telnet session settings and
   auto-signon function are also described.

   By allowing a Telnet client to select the device name, the 5250
   Telnet server opens the door for applications to set and/or extract
   useful information about the Telnet client.  Some possibilities are
   1) selecting a customized device name associated with a particular
   user profile name for National Language Support or subsystem routing,
   2) connecting PC and network printers as clients and 3) auto-signon
   using clear-text or DES-encrypted password exchange.

   Applications may need to use system API's on the AS/400 in order to
   extract Telnet session settings from the device name description.
   Refer to the Retrieve Device Description (QDCRDEVD) API described in
   the AS/400 System API book [3] on how to extract information using
   the DEVD0600 and DEVD1100 templates.

   This draft describes how the IBM 5250 Telnet server supports Work
   Station Function (WSF) printers using 5250 Display Station Pass-
   Through.  A response code is returned by the Telnet server to
   indicate success or failure of the WSF printer session.

2. Enhancing Telnet Negotiations

   The 5250 Telnet server enables clients to negotiate both terminal and
   printer device names through Telnet Environment Options Negotiations,
   defined in the Standards Track RFC 1572 [13].

   The purpose of RFC 1572 is to exchange environment information using
   a set of standard or custom variables.  By using a combination of
   both standard VAR's and custom USERVAR's, the 5250 Telnet server
   allows client Telnet to request a pre-defined specific device by
   name.

   If no pre-defined device exists then the device will be created, with
   client Telnet having the option to negotiate device attributes, such
   as the code page, character set, keyboard type, etc.

   Since printers can now be negotiated as a device name, new terminal
   types have been defined to request printers.  For example, you can
   now negotiate "IBM-3812-1" and "IBM-5553-B01" as valid TERMINAL-TYPE
   options [11].

   Finally, the 5250 Telnet server will allow exchange of user profile
   and password information, where the password may be in either clear-
   text or encrypted form.  If a valid combination of profile and
   password is received, then the client is allowed to bypass the sign-
   on panel.  The setting of the QRMTSIGN system value must be either
   *VERIFY or *SAMEPRF for the bypass of the sign-on panel to succeed.

3. Standard Telnet Option Negotiation

   Telnet server option negotiation typically begins with the issuance,
   by the server, of an invitation to engage in terminal type
   negotiation with the Telnet client (DO TERMINAL-TYPE) [11].  The
   client and server then enter into a series of sub-negotiations to
   determine the level of terminal support that will be used.  After the
   terminal type is agreed upon, the client and server will normally
   negotiate a required set of additional options (EOR [12], BINARY
   [10], SGA [15]) that are required to support "transparent mode" or
   full screen 5250/3270 block mode support.  As soon as the required
   options have been negotiated, the server will suspend further
   negotiations, and begin with initializing the actual virtual device
   on the AS/400.  A typical exchange might start like the following:

   AS/400 Telnet server              Enhanced Telnet client
   --------------------------        -------------------------
   IAC DO TERMINAL-TYPE        -->
                               <--   IAC WILL TERMINAL-TYPE
   IAC SB TERMINAL-TYPE SEND
   IAC SE                      -->
                                     IAC SB TERMINAL-TYPE IS
                               <--   IBM-5555-C01 IAC SE
   IAC DO EOR                  -->
                               <--   IAC WILL EOR
                               <--   IAC DO EOR
   IAC WILL EOR                -->
                                .
                                .
   (other negotiations)         .

   Some negotiations are symmetrical between client and server and some
   are negotiated in one direction only.  Also, it is permissible and
   common practice to bundle more than one response or request, or
   combine a request with a response, so the actual exchange may look
   different in practice to what is shown above.

4. Enhanced Telnet Option Negotiation

   In order to accommodate the new environment option negotiations, the
   server will bundle an environment option invitation along with the
   standard terminal type invitation request to the client.

   A client should either send a negative acknowledgment (WONT NEW-
   ENVIRON), or at some point after completing terminal type
   negotiations, but before completing the full set of negotiations
   required for transparent mode, engage in environment option sub-
   negotiation with the server.  A maximum or 1024 bytes of environment
   strings may be sent to the server.  A recommended sequence might look
   like the following:

   AS/400 Telnet server              Enhanced Telnet client
   --------------------------        -------------------------
   IAC DO NEW-ENVIRON
   IAC DO TERMINAL-TYPE        -->
   (2 requests bundled)
                               <--   IAC WILL NEW-ENVIRON
   IAC SB NEW-ENVIRON SEND
   VAR IAC SE                  -->
                                     IAC SB NEW-ENVIRON IS
                                     VAR "USER" VALUE "JONES"
                                     USERVAR "DEVNAME" VALUE "MYDEVICE07"

                                     (do the terminal type
                                     sequence first)
   IAC SB TERMINAL-TYPE SEND
   IAC SE                      -->
                                     IAC SB TERMINAL-TYPE IS
                               <--   IBM-5555-C01 IAC SE
                                     (terminal type negotiations
                                     completed)
   IAC DO EOR                  -->
   (server will continue
   with normal transparent
   mode negotiations)
                               <--   IAC WILL EOR
                                .

                                .
                                .
   (other negotiations)         .

   RFC 1572 defines 6 standard VAR's: USER, JOB, ACCT, PRINTER,
   SYSTEMTYPE, and DISPLAY.  The USER standard VAR will hold the value
   of the AS/400 user profile name to be used in auto-signon requests.
   The Telnet server will make no direct use of the additional 5 VAR's,
   nor are any of them required to be sent.  All standard VAR's and
   their values that are received by the Telnet server will be placed in
   a buffer, along with any USERVAR's received (described below), and
   made available to a registered initialization exit program to be used
   for any purpose desired.

   There are some reasons you may want to send NEW-ENVIRON negotiations
   prior to TERMINAL-TYPE negotiations.  With AS/400 TELNET server,
   several virtual device modes can be negotiated: 1) VTxxx device 2)
   3270 device 3) 5250 device (includes Network Station).  The virtual
   device mode selected depends on the TERMINAL-TYPE negotiated plus any
   other TELNET option negotiations necessary to support those modes.
   The AS/400 TELNET server will create the desired virtual device at
   the first opportunity it thinks it has all the requested attributes
   needed to create the device.  This can be as early as completion of
   the TERMINAL-TYPE negotiations.



Murphy, Rieth & Stevens                                         [Page 8]


Internet Draft          5250 Telnet Enhancements           February 1998


   For the case of Transparent mode (5250 device), then the moment
   TERMINAL-TYPE, BINARY, and EOR options are negotiated the TELNET
   server will go create the virtual device.  Receiving any NEW-ENVIRON
   negotiations after these option negotiations are complete will result
   in the NEW-ENVIRON negotiations having no effect on device
   attributes, as the virtual device will have already been created.
   So, for Transparent mode, NEW-ENVIRON negotiations are effectively
   closed once EOR is negotiated, since EOR is generally the last option
   done.

   For other devices modes (such as VTxxx or 3270), you cannot be sure
   when the AS/400 TELNET server thinks it has all the attributes to
   create the device.  Recall that NEW-ENVIRON negotiations are
   optional, and therefore the AS/400 TELNET server need not wait for
   any NEW-ENVIRON options prior to creating the virtual device.  It is
   in the clients best interest to send NEW-ENVIRON negotiations as soon
   as possible, preferably before TERMINAL-TYPE is negotiated.  That
   way, the client can be sure the requested attributes were received
   before the virtual device is created.

5. Enhanced Display Emulation Support

   RFC 1572 style USERVAR variables have been defined to allow a
   compliant Telnet client more control over the Telnet server virtual
   device on the AS/400.  These USERVAR's allow the client Telnet to
   create or select a previously created virtual device.  If the virtual
   device does not exist and must be created, then the USERVAR variables
   are used to create and initialize the device attributes.  If the
   virtual device already exists, the device attributes are modified.

   The USERVAR's defined to accomplish this are:

   USERVAR    VALUE              EXAMPLE           DESCRIPTION
   --------   ----------------   ----------------  -------------------
   DEVNAME    us-ascii char(x)   MYDEVICE07        Display device name
   KBDTYPE    us-ascii char(3)   USB               Keyboard type
   CODEPAGE   us-ascii char(y)   437               Code page
   CHARSET    us-ascii char(y)   1212              Character set

   x - up to a maximum of 10 characters
   y - up to a maximum of 5 characters

   For a description of the KBDTYPE, CODEPAGE and CHARSET parameters and
   their permissible values, refer to Chapter 8 in the Communications
   Configuration Reference [5] and also to Appendix C in National
   Language Support [16].

6. Enhanced Display Auto-Signon and Password Encryption

   Several 5250 Telnet server specific USERVAR's will be defined.  One
   will carry a random seed to be used in Data Encryption Standard (DES)
   password encryption, and another will carry the encrypted copy of the
   password.  This would use the same password/substitution scheme as
   APPC and Client Access.  For a description of the 7-step DES
   encryption scheme, refer to Federal Information Processing Standards
   Publication 46 [17] or visit the IBM Customer Support FTP Server at
   one of the following links:

   ftp://ftp.networking.ibm.com/pub/standards/ciw/sig/sec/pwsubciw.ps
   ftp://ftp.networking.ibm.com/pub/standards/ciw/sig/sec/pwsubciw.ps.Z
   ftp://ftp.networking.ibm.com/pub/standards/ciw/sig/sec/pwsubciw.zip

   If encrypted password exchange is not required, clear-text password
   exchange is permitted using the same USERVAR's defined for
   encryption.  For this case, the random client seed should be set to
   either an empty value (RFC 1572 preferred method) or to hexadecimal
   zeros to indicate the password is not encrypted, but is clear-text.

   It should be noted that security of clear-text password exchange
   cannot be guaranteed unless the network is physically protected or a
   trusted network (such as an intranet).  If your network is vulnerable
   to IP address spoofing or directly connected to the Internet, you
   should engage in encrypted password exchange to validate a clients
   identity.

   Additional VAR's and USERVAR's have also been defined to allow an
   auto-signon user greater control over their startup environment,
   similar to what is supported using the Open Virtual Terminal
   (QTVOPNVT) API [3].

   The standard VAR's supported to accomplish this are:

   VAR        VALUE              EXAMPLE           DESCRIPTION
   --------   ----------------   ----------------  -------------------
   USER       us-ascii char(x)   USERXYZ           User profile name

   x - up to a maximum of 10 characters

   The custom USERVAR's defined to accomplish this are:

   USERVAR    VALUE              EXAMPLE           DESCRIPTION
   --------   ----------------   ----------------  -------------------
   IBMRSEED   binary(8)          8-byte hex field  Random client seed
   IBMSUBSPW  binary(10)         10-byte hex field Substitute password
   IBMCURLIB  us-ascii char(x)   QGPL              Current library
   IBMIMENU   us-ascii char(x)   MAIN              Initial menu
   IBMPROGRAM us-ascii char(x)   QCMD              Program to call

   x - up to a maximum of 10 characters

   In order to communicate the server random seed value to the client,
   the server will request a USERVAR name made up of a fixed part (the 8
   characters "IBMRSEED" immediately followed by an 8-byte hexadecimal
   variable part, which is the server random seed.  The client generates
   its own 8-byte random seed value, and uses both seeds to encrypt the
   password.  Both the encrypted password and the client random seed
   value are then sent to the server for authentication.  RFC 1572 rules
   will need to be adhered to when transmitting the client random seed
   and substituted password values to the server.  Specifically, since a
   typical environment string is a variable length hexadecimal field,
   the hexadecimal fields are required to be escaped and/or byte stuffed
   according to the RFC 854 [8], where any single byte could be mis-
   construed as a Telnet IAC or other Telnet option negotiation control
   character.  The client must escape and/or byte stuff any bytes which
   could be seen as a RFC 1572 [13] option, specifically VAR, VALUE, ESC
   and USERVAR.

   The following illustrates the encrypted case:

   In this example, "xxxxxxxx" is an 8-byte hexadecimal random server
   seed, "yyyyyyyy" is an 8-byte hexadecimal random client seed and
   "zzzzzzzz" is an 8-byte hexadecimal encrypted password.  If the
   password is not valid, then the sign-on panel is displayed.  If the
   password is expired, then the Change Password panel is displayed.

   Actual bytes transmitted in the above example are shown in hex below.

7. Device Name Collision Processing

   Device name collision occurs when a Telnet client sends the Telnet
   server a virtual device name that it wants to use, but that device is
   already in use on the server.  When this occurs, the Telnet server
   sends a request to the client asking it to try another device name.
   The environment option negotiation uses the USERVAR name of DEVNAME
   to communicate the virtual device name.  The following shows how the
   Telnet server will request the Telnet client to send a different
   DEVNAME when device name collision occurs.

   AS/400 Telnet server             Enhanced Telnet client
   --------------------------        -------------------------
   IAC SB NEW-ENVIRON SEND
   VAR USERVAR IAC SE         -->

   Server requests all environment variables be sent.

                                    IAC SB NEW-ENVIRON IS USERVAR
                                    "DEVNAME" VALUE "MYDEVICE1"
                                    USERVAR "xxxxx" VALUE "xxx"
                                    ...
                              <--   IAC SE

   Client sends all environment variables, including DEVNAME.  Server
   tries to select device MYDEVICE1.  If the device is already in use,
   server requests DEVNAME be sent again.

   IAC SB NEW-ENVIRON SEND
   USERVAR "DEVNAME" IAC SE   -->

   Server sends a request for a single environment variable: DEVNAME

                                    IAC SB NEW-ENVIRON IS USERVAR
                              <--   "DEVNAME" VALUE "MYDEVICE2" IAC SE

   Client sends one environment variable, calculating a new value of
   MYDEVICE2.  If MYDEVICE2 is different from the last request, then
   server tries to select device MYDEVICE2, else server disconnects
   client.  If MYDEVICE2 is also in use, server will send DEVNAME request
   again, and keep doing so until it receives a device that is not in
   use, or the same device name twice in row.

8. Enhanced Printer Emulation Support

   RFC 1572 style USERVAR variables have been defined to allow a
   compliant Telnet client more control over the Telnet server virtual
   device on the AS/400.  These USERVAR's allow the client Telnet to
   select a previously created virtual device or auto-create a new
   virtual device with requested attributes.

   This makes the enhancements available to any Telnet client that
   chooses to support the new negotiations.

   The USERVAR's defined to accomplish this are:

   USERVAR       VALUE            EXAMPLE           DESCRIPTION
   ------------- ---------------- ----------------  -------------------
   DEVNAME       us-ascii char(x) PRINTER1          Printer device name

   x - up to a maximum of 10 characters
   y - up to a maximum of 5 characters

   The "IBM" prefix on the USERVAR's denotes AS/400 specific attributes.

   For a description of most of these parameters (drop the "IBM" from
   the USERVAR) and their permissible values, refer to Chapter 8 in the
   Communications Configuration Reference [5].

9. Telnet Printer Terminal Types

   New Telnet options are defined for the printer pass-through mode of
   operation.  To enable printer pass-through mode, both the client and
   server must agree to at least support the Transmit-Binary, End-Of-
   Record, and Terminal-Type Telnet options.  The following are new
   terminal types for printers:

   TERMINAL-TYPE  DESCRIPTION
   -------------  -------------------
   IBM-5553-B01   Double-Byte printer
   IBM-3812-1     Single-Byte printer

   Specific characteristics of the IBM-5553-B01 or IBM-3812-1 printers
   are specified through the USERVAR IBMMFRTYPMDL, which specifies the
   manufacturer type and model.

   An example of a typical negotiation process to establish printer
   pass-through mode of operation is shown below.  In this example, the
   server initiates the negotiation by sending the DO TERMINAL-TYPE
   request.

                              <--   IAC WILL EOR


   Some points about the above example.  The IBMPPRSRC1 value requires
   escaping the value using ESC according to RFC 1572 [13].  The
   IBMPPRSRC2 does not require an ESC character since '04'X has no
   conflict with RFC 1572 options.  Finally, to send 'FF'X for the
   IBMENVELOPE value, escape the 'FF'X value by using another 'FF'X
   (called "doubling"), so as not to have the value interpreted as a
   Telnet character per RFC 854 [8].

   Actual bytes transmitted in the above example are shown in hex below.

10. Telnet Printer Startup Response Record for Printer Emulators

   Once Telnet negotiation for a 5250 pass-through mode is completed,
   the 5250 Telnet server will initiate a virtual printer power-on
   sequence on behalf of the Telnet client.  The Telnet server will
   supply a Startup Response Record to the Telnet client with the status
   of the printer power-on sequence, indicating success or failure of
   the virtual printer power-on sequence.

   This section shows an example of two Startup Response Records.  The
   source device is a type 3812 model 01 printer with name "PCPRINTER"
   on the target system "TARGET".

   Figure 1 shows an example of a successful response; Figure 2 shows an
   example of an error response.

10.1 Example of a Success Response Record

   The response record in Figure 1 was sent by an AS/400 at Release
   V4R2.  It is an example of the target sending back a successful
   Startup Response Record.

10.2 Example of an Error Response Record

   The response record in Figure 2 is one that reports an error.  The
   virtual device named "PCPRINTER", is not available on the target
   system "TARGET", because the device is not available.  You would
   normally see this error if the printer was already assigned to
   another Telnet session.

        Invalid print command        08 11 02 28 00 00

   Figure notes:

   1.  LL is the length of the structure defined in Byte 6.  If
       no additional data is present, the remainder of the
       structure must be padded with zeroes.

   2.  These are printer signal commands.  Further information on
       these commands may be obtained from the 5494 Remote
       Control Unit Functions Reference guide [2].  Refer to your
       printer documentation for more specific information on
       these data stream exceptions.

   3.  These are printer negative responses.  Further information
       on these commands may be obtained from the 5494 Remote
       Control Unit Functions Reference guide [2].

   The print data will start in byte LL+1.

11.2 Example of a Print Complete Record

   Figure 5 shows the client sending the server a print complete record.
   This would normally follow receipt of a print record, such as the

11.3 Example of a Null Print Record

   Figure 6 shows the server sending the client a null print record.
   The null print record is the last print command the server sends to
   the client for a print job, and indicates to the printer there is no
   more data.

   This example would normally follow any number of print records, such
   as the example in Figure 4.  This indicates successful completion of
   a print job.  The client normally responds to this null print record
   with another print complete record, such as in Figure 5.

12. End-to-End Print Example

   The next example shows a full print exchange between a Telnet client
   and server for a 526 byte spooled file.  Selective translation of the
   hexadecimal streams into 1) Telnet negotiations and 2) ASCII/EBCDIC
   characters are done to aid readability.  Telnet negotiations are
   delimited by '(' and ')' parenthesis characters; ASCII/EBCDIC
   conversions are bracketed by '|' vertical bar characters.

17. Relation to Other RFC's

   UPDATES

      This draft is an update to RFC 1205 [14], which describes the 5250
      Telnet Interface.  This update enhances that description to
      include device negotiation as well as printer support.

      This draft makes use of RFC 1572 [13] to enhance communications
      with 5250 Telnet clients.  RFC 1572 is currently on the Standards
      Track as a Proposed Standard, and is listed in Assigned Numbers
      [18].
