Windows-to-linux migration
I have a request from a customer to egt some information to him on the top most reliable and easy to use Linux Based Client Access solutions. He is familiar with MochaSoft CA and wants information on other solutions similar to this one. The co. I am with hasn't done much of this in the past so I can't lean on them for this opportunity. Current Infrastructure is iSeries 5 with about 200 Windows based customer service PC's spread out over about 20 locations. Have any of you made this type of a migration from Windows to Linux and keeping your legacy system (in this case iSeries)? Thanks is in advance!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

tn5250 package is the “standard” emulator used on Linux. http://tn5250.sourceforge.net/ Comes as a standard package with many linux distros, I have ubuntu linux in front of me and it has it in the repository.
You could also try IBM client access (linux version) it does not include iSeries Navigator but it works well and is not too difficult to setup in ububntu, there are some good setup/install guides available
