This demonstration makes Telnet 3270 connections over the Internet from our web server in Norway to TN3270 servers. One in the U.S.A. offers access to the Library of Congress' catalog search system. These applications use formatted screens typical of mainframe data processing systems which were previously only accessible to users with the appropriate emulator. Gweb makes this type of application available to anyone with a browser. You need not supply an IP address for these systems.
If you know the symbolic or numeric IP address of a TN3270 server and would like to try Gweb access to your own applications, choose the appropriate entry from the drop-down list and fill out the IP address field. If your application reads and reacts to the cursor position select the entry that gives buttons. There is also an IBM5250 demonstration.
If you are interested in Bull mainframe systems rather than IBM, try the VIP7800 or the Questar DKU demonstration.
You must click the Connect button to connect, thereafter 'Enter' will function as 'Transmit' if there is only one field in the host form. Otherwise you must click transmit to send. If you are using an application that reads the cursor position (e.g. as menu choices) then click the radio-button that Gweb puts next to the field.
