The advantage of Synapse WinAPPC (which I sell, recommend, use, and
support) is that is does native *SCS printer strings off of the AS/400 so
that you do not have to use the cycle chewing host print transform on the
AS/400 (turn it off).  You get all of the formatting commands and the
report spooled at the PC where you can control reprints, holds, etc. when
the print is on the PC.  

You can also print to any Windows printer (network or local) not just the
ones supported by IBM and their host print transform system.  

With WinAPPC Lite you get both display and printer over TCP/IP.  If you go
with the full version of WinAPPC you get an SQL based file transfer over
TCP/IP when it becomes available later this summer.  Standard Synapse
policy is that online updates are free and tech support is free (when it
works you can do that without fear).

Synapse doesn't fool around, they were first out the gate with a rich *scs
printer emulator over TCP/IP and the planned file transfer will be strong
as well.  They've been doing 5250 since the early 1980's.  Their full
