Mark,

Check out Albert York's TN5250.  This allows quick and dirty green 
screen access.  And I'm sure you can work something out with Albert on 
licensing and forcing it to connect to your system.  All you have to 
open up thru your firewall is TelNet.

Goto http://www.ignite400.org/html/software.htm and it is the first 
thing listed.

Bob

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..
