TTFS is the TPF-to-TPF Function Server. It enables TPF users to access resources that are currently not physically available on the VPARS/TPF systems where their transactions are being tested.
TTFS provides virtual connectivity and enables TPF programmers
in test mode to access remote resources. Without TTFS, programmers
must either schedule the physical resource (remote link or
remote connection) or must test on the single VPARS which
has network access.
How It Works
Requests for remote resources are intercepted and directed through a TPF server that has the actual remote links or connections.
TTFS allows critical network resources to be shared across multiple programmers.
