Hello all,

i got a BDE station which connects over tn5250 (tn5250_b0-16) to an AS/400. The OS of the BDE is LINUX. There is (for example) a hardware counter connected to the BDE over the V.24/RS232 interface.

I found some interesting papers on the Developer Resource page.

Now i am searching/fetching informations on sending datastreams to the tn5250 emu, to initiate an (read-)action on the connected devices to get e.g. the counter value. The value should be inserted into a field on the tn5250 screen like a manual input.
Another example is to get a datastream from the AS/400 to play a sound(file).


Is there already an implemented function/option to do this?

Has anybody got experiences with such a function?

If this is not already implemented, any ideas on how to doing this, writing an external prog or putting this functionality into the tn5250?


-- Best regards Andre Holthus
