If you are running the "new" version of Citrix, Metaframe, which runns on
microsoft's Windows Terminal Server, it supports Client Access.
The problem(?) with the first versions of Citrix was the fact that it was
running on NT 3.51.  There are some Telnet clients that you can run on it
and they include PowerTerm and I think the RUMBA products.
I got IBM Graphical Access working on that version of Citrix.  It worked ok
as a stand-alone telnet.  You just have to copy out the pieces parts
needed.

When you mention the 400 part, were you talking about a product that ran
on the Citrix server, or, were you talking about the 5250 option available
on the Netstation itself?  Or running the netstation 5250 part in
conjunction with Citrix?  Because we've been running the 5250 part since
the netstations were in beta.  There are pros and cons.  Pro is that the
netstations had named sessions long before Client Access.  Con is that
we have an open problem where this sometimes goes a little flaky.
Telnet5250 products that we've been looking at, to run on the Citrix
server, do not currently support named sessions.  Yes, I could probably
do that with the exit point programming but I was hoping to avoid that.

I trust this a newer version of the product IBM recommended in the early
days of the Network Station... I put this in a customer site about two
years ago and it proved to be a disaster.. I will say, that IF you only
run pc apps., it will run quite nice, but when you throw the IBM version
that does the 400 part, things went down hill very quickly... They were
putting out PTF's on a daily basis... The Network administrator portion
was where all the problems came in.... BUT.... just pc apps and NO 400,
it
ran like a scalded dog.... You could run 5250 emulation pretty well, but
when you mixed the environment.... strange things continued to happen...
but that's what I get for bleeding edge stuff... I assume it's much
better now.... the network station seems to have died down a LOT.

Again... I assume this is the same product....
