Has anyone had any experience wtih OS/2 and OS/2 Warp communications on the AS/400. It is licensed installed software on my company's AS/400. I'm wondering if it is native communications between the 2 OSes and hardware, or if Client Access and/or TCP/IP is required. eCS (ecomstation, took over OS/2) may work in a similar manner as OS/2 communicating. Has anyone implemented eCS on clients/servers accessing AS/400 iSeries, System i and Power systems?

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

OS/2

Woo Hoo – a real PC OS!!

I still have acopy of Warp at home, and its predecessor, but in those days the comms was obvious anbd matched the iSeries abilities.

Unless there is a burning reason to have OS/2 then I’d suggest a move to Linux..

or… (gasp) even something from MickeySoft that will work with any flavour of Client Access.

    Actually, a burning desire to have a real PC operating system, since IBM ended support for OS/2

    I share the desire. . . You can use Linix. there are a couple of good 525o emulators available, IIRC you can just set up a telnet connection (or they do) and then you have a 5250. Last time i used one, the kleyboard map for stuff like F15 ( f13 - 24 !) needed setting up, but after that all was good. We should do this and publish the write up...
