Hi Jon

When I first switched over to Linux I spent ages looking for such a 
beast. I eventually found http://www.starquest.com which only appears to 
be for the big UNIXs. I then discovered the tn5250 project (now at 
http://www.linux-sna.org/software/5250 ) which is what I've been using 
since then. It doesn't have a file transfer application as such, but 
there is a draft AS/400 file to XML document routine that works quite 
well. The 5250 emulation isn't as fully featured as CA, but is more 
stable for me as a result ;-) The mailing list is hosted here on 

Mochasoft (http://www.mochasoft.dk) now have a Linux 5250 client but it 
doesn't include file transfer (as far as I can tell).

I asked over on the IGNITe list a while back about CODE/400 for Linux and 
was told it's in development, so it may be that IBM will do the same with
