To date, I've only effectively used the Telnet 5250 session over Socket
Sidewinder(SS). Although I've used it to redirect other custom applications
as well, I don't with to post any statements to say that Socket Sidewinder
is 'Corporate Strength'. I have one customer that we configured SS to get a
new application up and running until the NAT configs were done. A year and
a half later, they are still using Socket Sidewinder without complaints.

I did try once to get FTP to work over SS by configuring port 20 and 21,
but since the NT server already was using these ports I - Let it go. I
don't know how and/or if the FTP ports can be overridden so I quit trying.

The only request I've had was to support a printer session (LPD). I suppose
this could work as well as long as the printer had a static IP address or
was reachable via DNS. Mochasoft has a LPD product that might be a simple
enough solution if Win9x/ME is your OS. Windows NT/2000 have LPD/LPR
support in the OS.

I downloaded Sidewinder but haven't had time to try
it.  Must you use mocha or can you use client access?
Can you do other things such as ftp?  Or is it limited
to telnet?  Sounds very promising - thank you -

Sounds like I need to do the samething Stanley needs
to do.
