Borrow a 5250 terminal from work long enough to see if this beast works.
Or hit ebay for an emulation card or 5250 terminal.

There's a lot more traffic on the midrange-l list.  Someone there might 
have the driver for the dec5250 card.

Re: [Security400] Questions about an Old AS400 System






thanks for the reply Rob,

I've got the box actually that breaks out of the 9 pin connector at
the back, which has the round connectors. from there I have a cable
which goes to a sort of T junction which connected back to a 15 port
female connector that plugs into the dec5250 card I don't have drivers
for . Their apparently on Perle's pages, but
they don't provide access to that to the public :(

Please let me know if anything else comes to mind....
Thanks! 

Jonathan
