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!
