We would like to setup our IMSCONNECT as a Backend side in our Multi protocol gateway and having an IMS transaction in mode SEND ONLY. (no response mode).

As per IMS guideline from IBM, for our purpose the parameter IRM_F4 value must be ‘S’.

Currently it is IRM_F4 = X'40' (for a send-receive interaction, see option in the array below) and it seems like there is no possibility to modify it from the “Configure IMS Connect” menu. IRM_F4 is setup to 0x40 (offset 35 in the *IRMREQ* Header).
