    Unanswered: Connection methods

    I have a db2 server on a Win7 machine and a db2 client on a Win7 machine.
    As i understand i can connect from my client to the server either by TCP/IP or by SNA.
    Are there any other ways of connecting to the server(using the DRDA protocol)?
    And also, how does the SNA method connection works? how do i connect to the server via this method.
    Big Thanks for all the helpers.

    I believe appc/sna is not supported anymore
    the only protocol can be tcpip
    according the doc (9.5)
    (Note: While APPC, APPN, or NetBIOS might still appear as options, they are no longer supported.)
