SuperTracs hasn't been sold for years, but even when it was, based on the
library names you mentioned, that sounds like Gentran, not SuperTracs. You
might want to verify what product they actually have. Gentran is still

In the old days, SuperTracs/400 was actually the communications subsystem
from Gentran/400 so you could probably get the functionality you need by
buying a current copy of Gentran. I will probably get fired for saying this,
but because today feels like that would be a blessing, Sterling also sells a
product called Communications Module for AS/400. Comm Module is the more
recent incarnation of the old SuperTracs/400 product. That would relieve
your customers from having to buy a full-blown EDI product if all they
really need is the communications part.

If, however, they really have a Gentran 7.0, as the library names indicate,
they probably need the current version of Gentran, which is now called
Gentran:Server for AS/400 (v3.2 I believe). Check this page:

FYI, Connect:Direct is a different animal all together.

subject: SuperTracs?

I have a customer who uses an ancient version of this software to send
EDI's to a partner mainframe.  It uses libraries named G7X0PGM, G7X0DTA.

We need to get a license for the software for another machine (a backup
Iseries).  I'm not really sure how to buy it.

I know Supertracs is now connect:Direct, from Sterling Commerce(?), but
they list only FTP and another version that don't sound like what we

The IT director of my customer company is calling around.  I was hoping
I could scoop him with some help from this list.

So, where do I buy Supertracs for Iseries?  Thanks.
