hi Richard,

Assuming you are automating this process, and don't need any sort of UI... is there a reason why you can't use VT100 emulation? It's much simpler to code than 5250. It's not as nice for the user, but if you have no interactive user, that's probably a non-issue. The Telnet server on IBM i does support VT100 directly.

If you can't do that, then you are probably going to be writing your own terminal object that interfaces with the lib5250 code. It's not REALLY that hard, but without any good examples or documentation, it'll probably be an uphill climb for you.

I've been tasked with writing an interface between an application that
runs on a remote iSeries host, accessible with TN5250 over a private
network, and our application that would query the iSeries in real time
without human interaction. My application will run on a Linux or AIX
box, and act like a broker between the local application and the remote
iSeries host application that contains the database we are querying.
