I could be wrong, but I thought he was refering to ASYNC devices.


Well, you might be wrong David, but I doubt it.  Chances are its me, not
you.  I thought tcp/ip was tcp/ip?  If a device can talk tcp/ip, isn't it
able to reach any other tcp/ip point on it's network?  A WYSE terminal may
not have good key mapping but that is another issue.  Is there a TN5250
package for unix?  

Also, I have used regular telnet programs from a PC and connected to an
AS/400 (no function keys), and I have used Netscape Communicator's
connection option and a friend is using Hummingbird's new product and
loves it.  I've also telneted to an AS/400 from a Sun Sparc Station on my
unix account.
