Step 1: Choose your style of logon automation.

As described in the introduction, Z and I Emulator for Web offers two styles of logon automation:
  • macro-based automation
  • connection-based automation
The style of logon automation that best suits your environment depends on your host and session type. If your host allows the client to supply the needed host credentials at the time the connection is established (for example, during the telnet negotiation via a Kerberos passticket), connection-based automation is the appropriate style to use. However, if the client does not receive the needed credentials at time the connection is established, the host must send a login screen to authenticate the client. Since automating this login screen requires a macro, macro-based automation is the appropriate style. The macro populates the screen's credential fields with the appropriate user information and then transmits this information to the host for authentication.
