I'm one of those salivators. The product I've mentioned several times—IBM's
Host On Demand v2—works great for me in getting to the 400 over an Internet
connection. Good TN5250, and < $200, and 100% Java, would you believe. Go
to <> and follow your nose.

BTW, the Host on Demand bundled with Netscape is v1 and only has TN3270.
Works to AS/400 but not too convenient. But it gives you an idea of the v2
