IBM 5250 client

Post by FarmaRinaldi1 »

I need to convert some thin clients to allow connection to IBM as400 system through client 5250.

As IBM officialy releases a 5250 client software for Linux, is it possible to install it on WTWare and use your software as connection client to IBM as400?

We have no console client in wtware. Thinstation should do.

WTware is a lightweight linux. Linux today is a few megabytes of kernel and several hundred megabytes of libraries. So we can run linux application if we have enough libraries for this application.
You can not install in wtware. We can try to add required libraries and run.
Why not thinstation?
