There is a tn5250 client for windows.  You can download it here


or by going to  tn5250.sourceforge.net.

You can edit a tn5250rc file to adjust your keymaps, security, fonts, etc..

Hope that helps, there is a manual included in the download.

        windows 2000/XP


We are using a remote tn5250 in a konsole after having been
connected with ssh to a local linux machine in our office.
 It's working both side under linux in a konsole(KDE software)
We want to have a way to connect with a PC under windows
 without using a huge installation of cygwin !
Cygwin works, but we never succeed in changing the size of the fonts.
Do you have a solution to connect to a linux konsole under
windows, so that we can then use the remote tn5250 to access
our iseries wih maximal security and with all the good
key mapping for france ?

Thanks in advance
