RE: Can I start a 5250 screen from a browser ?



fixed

Chris is correct to a point.  It was probably a mistype, but in
actuality F17 would be ESC, then SHIFT+5.

If you are using an older version of windows, the problem is that it
does not have a 5250 emulator, it has a vt100 emulator the vt100 tube
did not have 24 function keys, it only had 4. If you login with the
vt100 emulator and run DSPVTMAP it will show you what it has mapped the
keys to. FYI the function keys are mapped to ESC and then the regular
number so F5 would be ESC 5 and F17 would be SHIFT+ESC 5

Hi:

Yes, telnet from a Windows command line does connect via a virtual
device (named QPADEVxxxx). However, the display I get doesn't display
underscores for input capable fields or respond to function keys. The
first is a minor annoyance, the second is anything but minor.

This may work better in newer versions of i5/OS/400 or Windows than the
setup I tested:  V5R2 and W2K Pro. Or, there may be something about our
configuration that is unusual. However, the general case is disproved.

David,

I don't know if this will help you or not, but you can telnet to the
iSeries 
from a WinDoze command prompt. The session behaves just like any
TN5250 
session but it is black and white instead of green.

Hello to everyone,

I've only just discovered the command STRPCCMD.
I was looking to see if the reverse was possible.

I am using RPG for CGI in internet explorer and I want to be able to
run
a 
green screen interactive programme from the browser.
