This setting defines whether the DS will perform Link Service login procedure after a TCP data connection with another network host is established. For more information on Link Service see Link Server Documentation.


Link Service logins use the data from the following settings of the DS: Owner Name (ON), Device Name (DN), and Password (PW) setting). The password is supplied in the encrypted form so Link Service logins are secure.


Link Server Login is irrelevant when Current Transport Protocol (TP) [setting/parameter]= 0 (UDP) because UDP/IP cannot be used for communications with the Link Server.
