To clarify: I believe the article states that just the 5250 client uses up 32MB of disk space compared to 5MB for Synapse NetWolf and a skimpy 110k for the Linux TN5250 emulator (see Roger Pence AS/400 Letter I got today). My understanding is that there are, in fact, 3 Client Access/400's under the covers: 1. The FREE Server piece: CA/400 on the AS/400 (host services) 2. The FREE Client piece: CA/400 on the PC: Ops Nav, ODBC, DataQs, SUBRMTJOB, shared folders (network drives), shared printers (network printers), graphical access, GUI/400, the AS/400 DLLs, etc. 3. The billable Client piece: CA/400 on the PC: display, printer, and file transfer. When you install the Express Client Access it very clearly shows a column labeled "license required?
