I've only tried TN5250 on RedHat and on FreeBSD, personally, so I'm not
much help there...

I wouldn't list the Win32 client at this time.   We broke Win32
compatability quite a while back (thats why there hasn't been a newer

With some minor changes, it does compile under Cygwin, though... that's
the only way I've tried it in Windows...
