Synapse 5250 emulations (IP Client and WinAPPC) allow you to turn off ENPTUI and text-assist features if you don't like the "GUI-like" effects. Pop-up windows would then appear as on a "dumb" terminal. Also, later versions of the products allow you to modify the color scheme of ENPTUI objects (in the File/Preferences dialog). Perhaps you need an update -- which is available for free (as always) from the Synapse web site www.synapse.com. AFAIK, Synapse IP Client is the only product that offers both LPD *and* TN5250E printing. The LPD printer Daemon makes a dandy print server as it supports multiple AS/400s, multiple output queues and multiple PC printers (locally or networked). If enough demand develops for it, we could offer printer emulation alone. If you have any questions regarding Synapse products or have any problems at all, please contact us via email at email@example.com, call toll-free 1-800-457-5250, or email me directly and I'll see that your issues are resolved. Synapse does not charge for technical support of its products. Joe Frank Synapse Communications, Inc. > > ----- Original Message ----- > > From: James W.
