The 5250 emulator in Client Access Express (Rochester) comes from Personal
Communications (Raleigh)  The slim comes in the fact that they no longer
support legacy links.  No NetSoft NS/Router, no anynet, no autosync modems,
etc with this version.  It's pure TCPIP only.  If it got any slimmer people
might complain about lost functionality and performance.  Also IMHO the real
benefit of Client Access Express is in the OP NAV.

If you want real slim try IBM's Host On Demand Telnet 5250E browser based
emulator.  Schuman Shao and the boys have done a great job with this one.

        I just got my AS/400 Network Expert which has an article on the new
Express
        Client Access.  I thought this was supposed to be slim.  They say it
can
        take up to 96MB of disk space -- WOW.  Some diet.  If just running
5250
        emulation they need a whopping 32MB of disk space.  What the heck
can they
        be doing that needs so much space.  For example, their competition,
Synapse
        NetWolf takes 5MB with the ability to load it down onto one 3.5 inch
floppy
        (so less than 1.44MB).  Jeeszesh!
