Re: Info on Shriva LAN Rover



fixed

Hi Nina:
Thanks for the reply.  The client *finally* let me use DUN to make a PPP
connection to the Shiva unit and then I just started my TN5250 emulator to
the IP address of the AS400.  His jaw dropped when he saw the signon screen,
he tucked his tail and disappeared and we didn't see him (the "network
expert") the rest of the day.  I love happy endings! :)
