Hi James,

You might want to look at this Microsoft.... (yeah
them) knowlwdgebase web page for some further
explanation regarding the header you have trapped in
your sniffer trace.


It looks like you will need to get a copy of the IBM
document "AS/400 5250 Display Station Pass-Through:
Interface Specification" to fully understand the X'80
value's significance. Since the web page mentions
there is no document number for the publication, it
probably means it is a LIPI.
