Dean,

They where dialing into the ASCII workstation controller and the 
windows Terminal program was doing VT-100 emulation.   Actualy, 
not a bad way to do it as just about every comm program in the 
world supports VT100.

The only problem being the keyboard mapping.  It is the same as 
for a telnet session.  Eg: F1 is "Esc 1", F2 is "Esc 2", etc.

Hey Folks!

I have a new consultant at my primary client that connected to 
her last
client's /400 via the "Terminal" program in Windows.  She admits 
that she
doesn't know much about how it worked, other than the fact that 
the F-Keys had
to be re-mapped and were still a pain to use.  She's tried to 
connect to the
current client (via ASCII workstation controller) using both the 
same
methodology and a "free-ware" TN5250 product, to no avail.  Does 
anyone know
how she might have done this originally?  Personally, I couldn't 
imagine how
"Terminal" could have worked in the first place...

TIA,
