SUBJECT 3: TN3270 Software Update. WIC was recently informed by the State Data Center of a setting that will need to be changed in TN3270 software. TN3270 is the software required to access the “green screens” for Vital Records, WIC, and other mainframe systems. The settings increase the security on the communication between the software and the server. Instructions are attached to walk the local agency users through the process on how to change the settings. This process will need to be completed by June 13, 2019. If local agencies have their own IT support, work directly with them to get the changes as required. For assistance or questions, please call ITSD Help Desk at 800-347-0887.
