Mod CP so TCPIP connected users have their foreign host address associated with their logical device at LDEV creation time. Surprisingly no mods to TCPIP are required. Throughout CP if the IP address is available, we make use of it on messages to the OPERATOR for LOGON, RECONNECT and DIAL events. We also make it available to an ESM for LOGON and RECONNECT, thus allowing it to show up in the ESM's audit log.

With this mod applied to CP the messages written to the OPERATOR's console look like this:

07:13:26 GRAF L0032 DIALED TO VSM      0080 DIALED= 2    FROM 142.036.182.066
10:20:10 GRAF L0006 LOGON  AS  PRUITER  USERS = 355   FROM 142.031.240.182
11:00:44 GRAF L0006 DISCONNECT PRUITER  USERS = 352   BY LOGON FROM GRAF L000B
11:00:44 GRAF L000B RECONNECT  PRUITER  USERS = 352   FROM 142.031.240.196
11:02:10 GRAF L000C LOGON  AS  AMCFARLA USERS = 354   FROM 142.036.091.093
11:08:31 GRAF L000C LOGOFF AS  AMCFARLA USERS = 353
11:10:16 GRAF L0006 LOGON  AS  BOOTHCHM USERS = 354   FROM 142.025.014.201
11:10:48 GRAF L0006 LOGOFF AS  BOOTHCHM USERS = 353
11:31:23 GRAF L000C LOGON  AS  MAHANSEN USERS = 357   FROM 142.031.240.198
11:36:18 GRAF L000B DISCONNECT PRUITER  USERS = 355
11:36:52 GRAF L0006 RECONNECT  PRUITER  USERS = 356   FROM 142.031.240.196
11:38:05 GRAF L000D LOGON  AS  OP1      USERS = 357   BY PRUITER  FROM 142.031.240.196
11:41:22 GRAF L000D LOGOFF AS  OP1      USERS = 357
11:43:40 GRAF L0006 DISCONNECT PRUITER  USERS = 359
11:43:47 GRAF L000B RECONNECT  PRUITER  USERS = 359   FROM 142.031.240.196
11:45:13 GRAF L000B DISCONNECT PRUITER  USERS = 359

These updates fit (and have been tested on) both CP V2.1.0 and CP V2.2.0, but they are benign enough that they probably will fit without change and function properly on older CPs too.

This level includes an update to CP V2.3.0 to assist in transitioning between TCP/IP V2.x and TCP/IP FL310. Once CP V2.3.0 and TCP/IP FL310 are in production together this update is obsolete, since similar functionality is now built into base CP.
