Attachments are munched by the mail software so it wouldn't have made it through as an attachment, but is probably not needed. I was more interested in the location of the file(s). Outside of a couple of small differences in your setup and mine, they are pretty much the same.

My tn5250j.jar was originally installed using the installer jar but since then I have had some project updates that I have added to the jar that I have done myself or incorporated into the jar from other contributors on the tn5250j list. The jar I am currently running can be found here:

I can't say I have run the tn5250j from a folder on the ifs before. The tn5250j installer puts them in the Program Files/tn5250j folder it created. Do you see the props file in the .tn5250j folder under your user ID in Documents and settings? Maybe there is a permissions issue with the IFS location you are running it from.

You could try the new jar but it seems to me that the .java.policy is having trouble enforcing the policy of the file in the user/documents and settings folder. Or perhaps since the tn5250.jar file is on the i, maybe there is an issue crossing the IFS boundary. How are you launching the tn5250j.jar on the i?

What version of tn5250j? 0.6.0

Did you find the .java.policy file in your user folder as expected or did
you add it? I added the .java.policy file to my user folder. It's attached
to this email.

What version of JVM are you running? 1.5.0

Let me know if you need anything else.

It has been a while since I configured tn5250j but it sounds like you have things set up correctly. There are quite a few variables though, tn5250j version and JVM version being a couple of them.

Good afternoon,

TN5250J doesn't save the display settings(color, gui, key mappings,
when exiting the browser.

I specified "read, write" as instructed below:

// change the following to "read,write" if you want the user to be
able to save

permission "TN5250JDefaults.props",

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you,
