You may get a pop up window asking “Do you want to run this application?” Click Run to continue. After a few seconds, you will see the LSUMVS-secure HOD mainframe window.
This browser based version of the client is dependent on the web browser. If the browser closes or crashes then the HOD session will also end.

Keyboard settings, screen colors, and display attributes can be customized. The settings can be found in the running HOD session by clicking on Edit - Preferences and then the object you want to change such as Color, Display or Keyboard. To save your changes, select File in the Menu bar and Save and Exit.
What if session 3270 closes unexpectedly?
