What is in 5769-CM1

Can someone tell me what is included in Licenced Pgm 5769-CM1. I am upgrading an AS400 and don't think I use this. (it will cost 13K for the licence).
Are there any utility programs that can tell me what LICPGMs I am actually using.
Thanks in advance

log onto your AS400 using QSECOFR.

type in GO LICPGM.

From the options displayed, I think there is one that says display installed programs.

This should tell you what you have currently installed on your machine.

Thanks Samic your correct however the question was to figure out what I use.
The obvious stuff like PDM Query etc is straight forward but I am not sure what is incorporated into 5769-CM1 (communications stuff).
I think it is used for RJE plus ??????.
Since IBM have/keep changing what is licenced seperately it becomes more difficult to know what you need.

FYI: IBM announced that they withdraw support for this feature.

Hi Nigel,

I found the following about 5769-CM1 in the documentation:
===========================================================
8.6 IBM Communications Utilities for AS/400 Version 4 Release 2, 5769-CM1
 
The Communications Utilities for AS/400 comprises the MVS/VM bridge and Remote Job Entry (RJE) functions.  These capabilities provide for
interchange of mail and files and submitting or receiving jobs between connected systems.
 
The MVS/VM bridge provides support to allow the movement of mail and files to and from a System/370 host system (VM PROFS and RSCS)
using the BSC protocol or SNA over SDLC lines, over an X.25 network, or over an IBM Token-Ring Network.  The SDLC and X.25 lines may
connect through an X.21 interface.  This support also includes direct connection to VM/RSCS or MVS via JES2 or JES3.  Other operating systems
may be reached indirectly through the RSCS or JES network including DOS/VSE using VSE/POWER.  Other AS/400 systems, System/36s, and
System/38s that are connected to an AS/400 system MVS/VM bridge system using SNADS can also exchange mail and files with systems in the
network.
 
An AS/400 with the MVS/VM bridge may act as a bridge between PROFS users and users of OfficeVision for AS/400, Personal Services/36,
Personal Services/38, 5520, and DISOSS.  Users may exchange Document Content Architecture (DCA) Final Form Text or DCA Revisable Form
Text documents, notes and messages with PROFS users.
 
The MVS/VM bridge capability enables the AS/400 system to exchange with RSCS files, spooled output and messages generated by the Object
Distribution Facility on the AS/400, the System/36, or the System/38. Other files, such as job streams, generated on an AS/400, a System/36, or a
System/38 may be stored on the VM system and forwarded to the appropriate AS/400, System/36, or System/38 via the MVS/VM bridge.
 
The RJE portion of the Communications Utilities for AS/400 allows AS/400 to function as an RJE workstation for submission of jobs or receipt of
output from a host IBM 308x, 3090, 937x, or 43xx using BSC and/or SNA over SDLC lines, over an X.25 network or over IBM Token-Ring
Network.  The SDLC and X.25 lines may connect through an X.21 interface.  RJE support communications with host systems running MVS/SP
JES2, MVS/SP JES3, VM RSCS Networking, and VSE/AF POWER.

===========================================================
Remote job entry (RJE) allows an AS/400 user to use System/390-based applications and data in combination with AS/400 functions. RJE is part
of the IBM Communications Utilities licensed program (5769-CM1), which runs on all AS/400 systems with communications capabilities installed.
 
When using RJE, the AS/400 system functions as a remote work station that submits jobs to a System/390 host for processing under one or
more of the following systems:
 
   MVS/SP JES2 (SNA and BSC)
 
   MVS/SP JES3 (SNA and BSC)
 
   VM/SP RSCS (BSC only)
 
   DOS/VSE POWER/VSE (SNA only)
 
   OS/VS1 RES (SNA and BSC)
 
 
RJE can communicate with the host system using either of the following line protocols:
 
   Systems Network Architecture (SNA) over point-to-point switched or nonswitched connections
 
   Binary synchronous communications (BSC) over point-to-point switched or nonswitched connections
 
 
For BSC, multiple user-defined RJE subsystems may be used concurrently on different lines, each subsystem operating independently of the
other. For SNA, multiple subsystems can share the same line.
 
A writer (printer or punch) output stream can be directed to one of the following:
 
   A printer file (spooled or nonspooled)
 
   A physical database file member
 
   A diskette file (spooled)
 
   A DDM file
 
   User program
