The ASCII WSC (6141) is not available as a PCI card, so on a newer AS400 if there is no SPD bus, there is no ASCII, you would have to use a protocol converter such as Perle or IBM 5208 (I think). Dial ip IP works so much better than emulating an ASCII device. We used to have 6 ports set up for ASCII dial up, and all are gone. BTW, anyone want a 6141 card for a model E04 or a RISC model 400. The model 400 has an 18 port ASCII controller that has never been used. <g>, our ASCII controller are not being used at all.
