IBM 3270 Terminal Emulation for SCO

IBM 3270 Terminal Emulation for SCO

Post by Alanna Moze » Thu, 07 Nov 1996 04:00:00



We currently have an old old old PC in a corner that is used by a
number of users to log into an IBM mainframe as a 3270 terminal via a
synchronous dial-up modem.  The PC is dying and we need to replace it.  
My preference would be to fix the mainframe but it doesn't belong to
us...

Can anyone tell me if there is an IBM 3270 terminal emulation package
that we could run on SCO Unix (3.2v4.2)?  The package would actually
have to emulate a 3174 control unit with 3278 terminals attached to it.
 It would also need the capability to connect via a synchronous dial-up
modem.

Thanks...

We have had very good experience with the Data Talker U/X Board from Cleo
Communications.  We've run it under SCO Unix 3.2v4.2, and some earlier
versions as well.  I believe they Data Talker U/X has since been
upgraded, and may be an obsolete product, but they'll have a new product
to replace it (I think it's called Link U/X).  

The Data Talker does emulate a cluster controller and you can attach
(virtual) 3274 terminals, or printers, to it.  We haven't used the printer
capability at all.  We have used the Data Talker to connect to a
mainframe via a synchronous dial-up modem, as well as via local connections.

The address I have for Cleo Communications is:

        3796 Plaza Dr.
        Ann Arbor, MI 48108
        313/662-2002

        Sales (Rockford, IL): 800/544-4072

But this info is a couple of years old.  They have e-mail but I don't
have the domain name in front of me.

I hope this helps.

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:
