Hi Vernon,

I have been playing with PComm a bit, but haven't found a LAN console option yet. It is a somewhat older version though (5.6), perhaps that version didn't use that option yet.

I do have the Direct Console cable (the system used to be equipped with that), but I didn't succeed in getting that to work here at home (for both systems BTW). If tinkering for days doesn't make it work, I don't trust it, so I collected the required parts to convert it to Twinax console.

I thought PCOMM had all the stuff you need - is there an option there
for a LAN console? I know there is one for the direct-connect console.

Hi guys,

In my quest to control both my AS/400 / iSeries machines, I'm now in the situation where I need Client Access for one, PComm for the other machine.

Thing is, I need to control a LAN console for the iSeries, and a Twinax 5250 PCI adapter for the AS/400. Apparently CA V5R4 or PComm 5.6 can't run both solutions by itself, so I need both tools.

I've already been toying around with a VM with Windows, CA, and PComm, and apparently one machine can either run CA -OR- PComm, but not both.......or can it?
Does someone know if there is a way to install them both on one machine? I can always get another cheap PC and run PComm on it, but under my already stuffed desk I'd prefer to run both tools on the one PC I already have.
