Emulation for Macintosh
TCPAxcess from NLynx/Decision Data is a
software package that allows your Macintosh? computers to
access an IBM? AS/400? through a TCP/IP network. Now any Mac
on the network can connect to the AS/400 for terminal services
and file transfer?all through the familiar user interface
common to all MacMidrange products from Decision Data.
- Provides the terminal emulation component of the TCP/IP connection. TCPAxcess will connect directly to an
AS/400 through either Token-Ring, Ethernet, or LocalTalk networks. This software supports PrinterAxcess® (supplied with this release) and ETU® file transfer (available from Decision Data or selected resellers.)
- Works in combination with Apple® Computer Inc.?s or Open Transport software for the Macintosh Operating System. This software implements TCP/IP protocols which allow Macintosh computers to use TCP/IP.
- Uses the Telnet protocol to communicate to the AS/400 for
true TN5250E emulation on your Macintosh.
- Easy Configuration. Supports Mac OS versions 8, 8.86 and
9,and Open Transport for easy configuration in most Mac environments. Multiple host connection are easily configured. Includes printer emulation for increased productivity.
- Hotspots identify host menu items. Host menu items and
function keys can be assigned colors. Employ this aesthetic and intuitive approach to locate them quickly and easily.
- Apple scriptable. Define Apple scripts for automated sign-on,
repetitive data entry, or unattended operation.
- ETU file transfer support. ETU, an industry standard from
Decision Data, allows direct file transfer between the PC and System/36, Advanced Series/36, or AS/400.
- Online keyboard remapping.
- Supports 132 columns.
- Resizable windows allow you to display more than one session at a time.
- Color attributes can be modified.
- Copy and Paste allows you to copy to and from the AS/400 to your Macintosh (with Copy and Append, you can copy
multiple screens and then paste all at once.)
- Can be used with front-ending toolkits to provide custom user interface or task automation.
- Supports TN5250E print emulation over TCP/IP.
