there is no way to do this, although you can create multiple .ws files and
use File | Run other to initiate a new connection. If you base the name on
the PC host name, and leave the device name blank (requires a router),
PC5250 will append a single character (A, B, etc) to the host name,
incrementing the character each time you double click the little AS/400 icon.

What name are you referring to when you say "base the name on the PC host
name"? And does this apply to APPC only?

What I'm looking for is the "good old PC Support" behavior that added a
sequence of 'S1', 'S2', etc., to your PC's host name. I want this along
with the new named device capability in TCP/IP. It's really irksome to keep
losing good functionality.

BTW, this shouldbe supported when selecting the File>Run same option. But
this does not work—the OIA toggles between 657 and 658 status.

There's a hint of something in the Graphical Access command line options,
where you can specify a device name and a device name suffix. Can we get
this stuff all coordinated?
