telnet 3270 emulation

Post by Matt Collin » Sun, 17 Jun 2001 02:01:24



I am trying to use the 3270 emulation feature of the telnet client:

$ telnet
telnet> emulate 3270
Now emulating a 3270 terminal
telnet>

When I open a 3270 session to our mainframe however, I can't seem to use
what appears to be the 'clear' function default of '^z'.  I am doing
this all through telnet from another machine, which may be causing
trouble.  Is anyone aware of how to use the mapped keys in this 3270
emulator?

Thanks,
-Matt-

For serious 3270 emulation, I suggest you try x3270. I've used it for
years and it works great.

 I agree. IBM's tn3270 emulation is completely screwed up. x3270 is excellent
 program. The latest version of x3270 also has c3270 if you want to emulate
 3270 from character terminal.

Look at the file "/etc/3270.keys" contained in the bos.net.tcp.client
package.  By default, "clear" is bound to "Ctrl-L" and "PA2" is not
assigned.  Edit it as you like, and/or save a modified version as
"$HOME/.3270keys".  You can also conditionally modify the key
bindings based on terminal type using "if..else..load" directives.

But I agree with the person who recommended using "x3270" instead.

1. IBM 3270 Emulation; where?

To all,

        I'm looking for an already compiled version of x3270 for Solaris 2.3.  Or
any information on a 3270 emulator that uses TCP/IP port 23 and the X11 R6 Front
End.

BTW: SPRY 3270 Connect "DOES" work under WABI 2.0 on Solaris 2.3, BUT only
        once, you have to restart WABI after you terminate your 3270 session, to
        get SPRY 3270 to run again.

                                Thanks in advance,
                                Please email responses to:
