windows 7 and cllient access

windows 7 and cllient access

(OP)
ok,, our older cllient access worked for the Vista PCs, but will not work for the windows 7 PCs, we are starting to get in. On the AS400 we are still at R5V2. We have migrated from the Edwards World to a SQL based software. But I still need to maintain connectivity to the Green Screen.. I can give you the error,, CWB.... if you need it. I can open a plain telnet session into the box,, and it does work.. of course keyboard mapping, etc, etc, stops that from being a viable alternative. Suggestions,, comments,, free software??
Any comments are taken..   

RE: windows 7 and cllient access

I think you need V6R1. Do you need PTFs?  

RE: windows 7 and cllient access

tried install the V6R1,, will not install,, looking at the older ptf's to see where it is at. I have found that the MochaSoft product,, will connect, and the executable file size is very small.. Thanks for the Reply
 

RE: windows 7 and cllient access

Client Access straight off the V5R3 disk works for me under Windows 7 (beta version). The V5R3 Client may work with your V5R2 OS/400.
As for a free (open-source) alternative, I've used TN5250 from SourceForge. It's not as complete as PC5250, but is far better then regular telnet.
