Hello everyone,

I've been unable to get the STRPCO/STRPCCMD command to work with tn5250.

in my .tn5250rc file I have HILLB1 defined like this:

HILLB1{
host = xx.xx.xx.xx
env.DEVNAME=HILLB1
+local_print_key
+uninhibited
+allow_strpccmd
}

I normally use xt5250 so I issue the following command: xt5250 HILLB1
which starts a session with the AS/400. I log in and then issue the
command STRPCO. Then, to make sure that it worked I issue the STRPCO
command again and I get a message that says: "iSeries Access Organizer
is already active for device HILLB1." So I know that STRPCO is working.

I then issue the command STRPCCMD and hit F4 to prompt. I enter
"/usr/bin/kate" (without the quotes), leave the Pause parameter set to
*YES (the default) and hit enter. I then get a message that says,
"Required PC program (PCO.EXE) is not active. No communications with PC
can occur. Press ENTER to resume."

So I thought to myself, "Self, maybe it only works with tn5250 and not
xt5250." So I followed the same steps as above but I started with:
tn5250 HILLB1

I get the same results as I got with xt5250.

When I searched the archives I saw a message from Scott Klement that
said he couldn't remember what version he had added the code to make
STRPCO/STRPCCMD work but he knew it was in there. That thread was the
only one I found.

I'm using tn5250 version 0.17.3 and the AS/400 is using V5R4M0 L00. My
operating system is Kubuntu 8.04 and I'm using the Ubuntu version of
tn5250 rather than compiling from scratch.

Just for kicks I just now downloaded the 0.17.3 source code, compiled it
and tested it. I get the same results with it as I do with the Ubuntu
version of tn5250.

Anyone have any ideas what I'm doing wrong or of any incompatibilities
with my OS or the OS of the AS/400?

Thanks for any help!
Benny
