You may be able to make tn5250 work with Putty as a terminal. You'll need to: 1) Make sure that Putty sends unique escape sequences for each key code that you want to use. 2) Make sure your termcap/terminfo (err.. probably terminfo if you're running Linux) maps each key sequence to the correct function key. I've never done it myself, so all I can really say is "good luck." A better way to do this would be to use the Windows version of TN5250 directly from the machine where you are running putty. 1) In Putty's configuration, under Connection -> SSH -> Tunnels set your "source port" to something like "8023" and your destination port to "as400:23", make sure "Local" selected and then click "Add". 2) Now connect to your Linux computer with Putty. You should now have a "tunnel" that connects port 8023 of your home Windows computer to port 23 of your AS400. 3) From a command-prompt under Windows on your home PC, run the Windows version of TN5250 with: tn5250 localhost:8023 TN5250 will use Putty's tunnel (which is encrypted and secure, just as the SSH window is) to communicate with your iSeries. Alternately, you could set up SSL on your iSeries, and use the Windows TN5250 with SSL to protect your session...
