 SNC - Secure Network Communication 


SNC is used to make network connections using the Internet, in particular WAN connections, secure. It provides reliable authentication as well as encryption of the data to be transferred.

SAProuter allows SNC connections to be set up. The route permission table can be used to specify precisely whether and which SNC connections are allowed.


At least SAProuter Version 30 and SNC configuration according to the appropriate guide.

To be able to set up a SNC connection between two SAProuters

  • Each of the two SAProuters must have been started with the option
-K [<SNCname>] (AS/400: -K <SNCname> ) (see Option -K <mysncname>). These names ensure the authenticity of a host.
  • There must be a
  • KT entry in the route permission table of the source host, causing the connection to the target host to use the SNC layer.
  • There must be a
  • KP entry allowing the connection in both route permission tables.


    To set up a SNC connection between two SAProuters, you must start them with the option

    -K and configure the Route-Permission-Tabelle appropriately.
