The gateway software is the interface between the network and Vantage. It runs on the server as a separate operating system task. Client sessions that communicate through the gateway to Vantage are installed and running on workstations.

In contrast, sessions originating from a mainframe-attached system access Vantage through mainframe connections and TDP software and bypass the gateway completely.

The following table describes tools available to administer your gateway.

Tool Name Function
