Other than IBM's Communications Server or whatever, I don't know that anyone else actually made SNA work on Linux. There were two separate projects at one time in the past, but both seem to have disappeared now, don't know that either ever worked either ;( Regards, dtb - -- "Some things in life can never be fully appreciated nor understood unless experienced firsthand.

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ I used x3270. Works well enough for our "dark side interface" to one o our b= illing systems. Sent from my iPhone

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ Thanks guys, will give it a try in the morning.

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ well it ain't for linux or mac (unless they are running ms-windows in vm, lol) and it apparently ain't free anymore, but I use an ancient version (3.2f June 28 1995) of qws3270 when I connect to my mainframe emulators from windoze seems that qws3270 is now marketed by Jolly Giant instead of Queen's University Kingston, but if you look around you can find the old ancient and apparently free version, hint

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ I ended up using the x3270 emulator from the Ubuntu repos.

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ me too attached screenshot, if it comes thru (low-quality greyscale to save space) shows x3270 connected to sim390/music emulator. this might trigger some memories for UTC alumni
