PPS 3270 Connection Software Instructions

UCOP PPS - Secure TN3270 Connection

Since September 1, 2004, only SSL-encrypted connectivity is allowed for connections to UCOP's IBM applications, including Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) (uccmvsb.ucop.edu , port 992).  Please note, if you are using only the PPS website as a reviewer you will automatically be redirected to UCOP's secure web server and no other changes will need to be made.

There are a number of options for connecting to UCOP's mainframe with a secure client via both PC and Macintosh computers and computers running Windows 64-bit operating systems. 

  • If you already are running a program such as TN3270 or QWS3270, a free add-on is available to you for downloading which makes your programs SSL capable.  This product is Stunnel for the PC, and Brown TN3270 for the Mac.   Click here to be directed to UCOP's site describing Stunnel and Brown: http://www.ucop.edu/irc/services/securetn.html 

  • For computers with 64-bit operating systems, Jolly Giant’s QWS3270-Secure software should be downloaded and installed for the SSL 3270 connection.  This software is available for Windows XP through Windows 7 and works on both 32- and 64-bit systems. The software can be purchased via online, phone or fax and costs $60 per license.  To order simply go to http://jollygiant.com/order/ and be sure to order QWS3270 Secure.  You will receive and email with a link to download and install your software.  If you need assistance configuring the program to work with UCOP ‘s PPS system or UCR SIS systems, please call the C&C Help Desk at x2-3555. 

If you have any questions on the UCOP decision and PPS information, please contact Gabe.Nwandu@ucr.edu.   For questions or help on downloading, installing and setting up the software, please call the Computing Help Desk at x2-3555.
