Assuming you're talking a TCP/IP connection, I recommend the Host On Demand
product from IBM. Version 2 gives you a pretty good TN5250 client, and it
runs in any browser. It's written completely in Java, too.

Go to <> and look under Products for Networking.

You might also consider the fuller-function version of the HyperTerminal
app in Win 95. It's called HyperTerminal Private Edition, and there's a
free version that includes a reasonable 5250 emulation, I think—or it may
be the HyperAccess product by the same company. Anyway, take a look at

Both of these assume TELNEt is activated on the 400.
