It's me, the DEC guy again. Thanks for all the responses and emails with my newby installing software questions. Well, I finally got TCP/IP installed, on my little network, and running. I can ping the AS/400 from the laptop and the laptop from the AS/400. No problem (now). I have PowerTerm emulation software on the laptop. I want to open a 5250 telnet session to the AS/400. But I don't seem to have everything on the AS/400 set up right. I've been reading about virtual devices and workstations. I never get the logon screen on the laptop. I can hear the AS/400 chug each time I try, but it's like an immediate disconnect to the emulator. What do I need to set up on the AS/400 side? Frustrated, Jeff
Using IBM Personal communications 5250 emulator version 5.5, on XP Pro, 4 mth old Dell. I have mapped ctrl-c and ctrl-v to cut and paste respectively. Occasionally, I do a lot of cut-paste operations between the 5250 session and excel. This works OK for a while. But, after 10 minutes or so of cutting pasting between excel/5250, suddenly the system emits an error beep when I mark the text and try to use CTRL-C to copy. And, i cannot copy / paste until I close the emulator, and restart. This is very annoying...anyone know how to fix this one? By the way, the same problem occurs on my desktop, and my laptop so I think this could be related to the 5250 software.
I am trying to map a keyboard for a user that needs the enter key on the numeric key pad to be the actual enter key and not the field exit key. If the num luck key is not in use the keyboard mapping works, but if the user turns on the num lock to use the numeric key pad the enter key is not working as an enter key. Any suggestions on correcting this issue for the user. Thanks
Im looking for a keyboard overlay that I can actually use on my keyboard for Falcon 4, Allied Force, I've seen pdf files but I want one you used to get included back in the good old days. BTW this is a pretty fun game, the last combat sim I played was Tornado(yeh a long time ago)...that was a fun flight sim.
