Hey Michael,

I hope all is well.

I checked our records and not sure if you have the iSeries Office Integrator, but the OFCRUNPC command will work with any 5250 telnet emulator to be able to run PC commands from the IBM i.

Any you should be able to get feedback on success or failure and can check PC directories on the system to determine which emulator program is loaded as well if needed.

Feel free to reach out to support or me if you have questions or need a demo.

I have a need to able to use the STRPCCMD with a longer length... This is from the V7R2 Memo to users:

STRPCCMD command changes Start PC Command (STRPCCMD) behavior changes.

When STRPCCMD is used with the 5250 emulator in IBM i Access Client Solutions, the maximum command
length that may be specified for the PCCMD parameter is now 1023 characters. Other 5250 emulators may
truncate the command to their maximum supported length. For example, the 5250 emulator in IBM i
Access for Windows and Personal Communications will truncate the command to the existing limit of 123

I spun that one around a bit and am unable to see how it could be possible.

Perhaps there's a different question? Assuming that you /could/ find out the emulator, what would your RPG program do with that information?
