Software: RBC/36

Remote Batch Control/36 (RBC/36)
Last Updated: September 3, 1998
RBC provides these important functions critical to your network of System/36 computers:
  • Automatically send output reports to any printer on your network
  • Send any file to another computer on your network
  • Retrieve any file from another computer on your network
  • Send or retrieve library members between systems
  • Start a batch job on any machine, including parameter passing between systems
  • Send a message to any workstation or user at a remote system
  • Year 2000 Compliant on all System/36 platforms from 5360 and up
Whether you dial across country, lease a line across town or directly attach in the same computer room, RBC works the same. It is easy to use and, at $500.00 for the first two sites, it is the most affordable communications package on the market.

RBC is easy to use. All of the features are available from our menus. You can code calls to our programs from your own OCL procedures. The features are all designed to make communications easy for you. For example, to send a file to a remote system, simply supply the name of the file and the remote location name and your file is on it's way.

RBC is also easy to install. The only software support you need from IBM to run RBC on your System/36 is Base Communications (IBM feature 6001). This is a no charge feature from IBM (really!). If you are already using Passthru, you already have the support needed to run RBC. First time users of communications on the System/36 will appreciate the predefined ICF configurations supplied with RBC.

If you need help with installation or configuration, our technicians are available to get you up and going quickly.

When you're ready to move up to a native AS/400, RBC/400 is there waiting for you. It is compatible with your System/36 procedures and has a full native AS/400 implementation as well. Kisco Information Systems will make the upgrade available to you at a special upgrade price, protecting your software investment in RBC/36.

RBC/36 is fully compatible with the AS/400 Advanced System/36 systems. It has been installed and used on both the 9402-236 and the 9402-436 systems. It is also compatible when used on an SSP Guest System/36 running on a native AS/400. When used on the model 436 or under the SSP Guest, RBC can be used to transfer files between defined SSP systems and to an OS/400 system running within the same machine. It can also be used in conjunction with RBC/400 on the same machine.
