Thank you. You are correct. Not only are these other features unnecessary,
they are undesired. We would have to find a way to disable them if they are
there.

BTW. I downloaded both the Telnet/400 and Mochasoft products. Both
are priced at $25 per seat and $250 per site. Telnet/400 is very easy to
deploy. In fact it is a single .exe. Mochasoft has more objects and uses an
install. Both provide simple 5250 emulation, though I haven't tested any
applications that use advanced workstation functions. Mochasoft has more
bells and whistles like being able to record macros and setup a button
for playback. It also allows for customizing colors and cursors. The one
thing I didn't like about Telnet/400 is a delay after you key before it
shows
up on the screen. It's not a long delay, but it is still noticeable. Maybe
that's
just part of the shareware version.
