I'm not sure I understand what you mean by sending an INTERRUPT, Peter. 
With a TELNET session running on the AS400, pressing the ATTENTION key 
gives you the Send TELNET Control  Functions menu. The first option, 
Interrupt process, is used to cancel a process on the server. I can't find 
anything in the TCP/IP manual about sending an INTERRUPT. No INTERRUPT 
function is listed in the PC5250 keyboard map. What are you doing your 
"quick test" on?

It depends. (that's always the answer isn't it?) Implementation is
basically on a client-by-client basis, but a quick test shows that
sending INTERRUPT (which is a pretty standard function) gives returns
the Attention key menu on my system. The process is to do whatever
chicken-waving the telnet client requires to send the INTERRUPT signal
to the host. In the cae of the bare-bones ASCII telnet client included
with OS/2, the process is press ctrl-], then type "send interrupt" at
the "telnet>" prompt. On other clients, you may be able to remap the
ESC key to send interrupt, or it may be on a menu option someplace.
