Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(ACF/NCP, usually called just "NCP") The primary sna network control program, one of the acf products. ACF/NCP resides in the communications controller and interfaces with acf/vtam in the host processor to control network communications.

NCP can also communicate with multiple hosts using local channel or remote links (pu type 5 or PU type 4) thus enabling cross domain application communication. In a multiple mainframe SNA environment, any terminal or application can access any other application on any host using cross domain logon.

See also emulator program.
