I don't have a question. This is just a post under the 'System i <> AS/400' topic. A co-worker, Ben Peters of Help Systems, sent this image: Firefox 1.5 in i 7.1 Yes, it shows Firefox running as a BCI job in a workstation/terminal session using PASE. He was testing Xterm sessions in i 7.1 and wondered about Firefox. The threading mechanisms pre-7.1 don't seem to match what's needed, but 7.1 does work (with FF 1.5 for now). With Ben's permission, I'm adding one of his early images, an actual image of Firefox 1.5 contacting http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ while running in a System i subsystem: My user agent? Why... it's OS400! Ben wondered if they had ever returned "OS400" in any previous connections. If you can execute a browser session in workstation session, what else is possible? I've urged him to write up what he's been doing. If there's sufficient interest, an article describing the process might be created. Tom

Software/Hardware used:
Firefox 1.5 i 7.1
