You could web enable your app and let your customers use the browsers they
already have.

Also, have you looked at IBM's "Host On Demand" product.  It's their browser
based emulation product.  It's very slick, it uses a combination of JAVA and
CGI.  IBM will be showing it off at Common starting on Sunday or you should
be able to find it on their www site.

        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..
