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.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/169575/EN-US/

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.

HTH

Best Regards,

/Paul
