Client Access Express has all that capability built into it. You can select
actually what the user can do on installation. 

Licenses are just based on how many you have purchased I believe. We
purchased unlimited so we don't problem. At least, that is how I think it
works.

Subject: Green Screen access for customers - suggestions??


Hello; I am a Sr. Project Lead at a distribution company.
We have customers that would like to dial into our AS/400
have restricted access through the AS/400 security
and be able to change their SRP's.

Here is the issue; we do not want to use Hyperterm; too 
clumsy and not very nice to look at.
Our preference would be Client Access - 
I am unclear of the IBM licensing issues with regards
to this option; not to mention the thing that concerns us the most
is the security issues with regards to being able to do file uploads
and downloads.  

With this in mind, is there a way to set CA up so that you do not
have access to upload/download; short of burning your own copy
and leaving out the *.EXE's that perform those functions; or 
having to go to each customer site to install CA and "remove
features" after the fact.  This all in all would still not stop a 
savvy "geek" to get a full copy of CA and still have access to 
upload/download by re-installing it.

Bottom line, is there anything our there that functions like
the old dumb terminals we all grew up with (ok I'm dating
myself, I have worked on a S/3 , S/34, S/36, S/38 (mod 8)
talk about needing a whole floor for a system)

It does not matter if they call our server or the AS/400;
I am just looking for thoughts and ideas to how this 
could be accomplished economically for our customers
and simplistic for the company so the knowledge can
be passed on painlessly.

Thank you in advance for any help..
