The procedure mentioned here is for any kind of connection, and that's the important thing to remember—this is for the connection. This is completely distinct from an emulation session. That's what makes this kind of discussion tricky, because we don't keep these two things separate. It has implications for security, restarting Win95 (3-4 times a day!!) without needing to enter user/password again, etc.

The password caching feature of Win95/NT applies only to the connection, not emulations. PC5250 does not allow bypassing the signon when the connection is TCP/IP—makes no sense to me, other than that the terminal emulation is actually TELNET, and that seems to matter here.
