Supported on a variety of different Unix and Windows platforms, TPS®/ TN3270 Client ( TCP/IP ) enables downstream Unix or Windows systems access to legacy applications or data on IBM® mainframes ( i.e., TSO™, CICS™, VM™, etc. ) or other hosts using TN3270 Server.


TPS®/ 3270 Client ( TCP/IP ) can function on many types of terminals and printers which eliminates the need for purchasing any new hardware. It is also designed to allow 3270 print jobs to be directed to any standard printer connected to a UNIX system via any standard print command. Print data can also be directed elsewhere, such as scripts, or stored in pre-specified directories for later use.


TPS®/ TN3270 Client ( TCP/IP ) provides an API, Extended High Level Language Application Programming Interface ( EHLLAPI ), where users can interface their applications to control mainframe applications or even automate file transfers. This API provides basic functions, plus others, to allow complete control without user intervention.


Do you need a TN3270 Server? TPS® Systems provides a full-featured TN3270 Server ( TCP/IP ) . If your connection to your mainframe is SNA and you already have TN3270 Clients or if you want to develop 3270 applications, check out TPS®/ TN3270 Server and TPS®/ SNA.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Standards compliant ( RFC 1647 ) TN3270E protocol emulation for terminals ( LU2 ) and printers ( LU1 and LU3 )
  • EHLLAPI ( Extended High Level Language Programming Interface ) support allows applications to control mainframe applications or even automate file transfers. Provides screen scraping capabilities
  • Ability to do file transfer to and from the host via IND$FILE protocol
  • Supports SSL ( Secure Socket Layer ) encryption
  • X-terminal support provides the user with easy-to-read text in proportion to the window size
  • Macro key support enhances efficiency when dealing with repetitive tasks
  • Support for multiple languages ( National Language Support )
  • Trace facility simplifies problem determination
  • Very easy installation and configuration
  • From TPS® Systems — with 25+ year tradition of excellence in providing network software and support for large global enterprises


PRODUCT POSITIONING

TPS®/ TN3270 Client (TCP/IP) is an ideal solution for either:

  • Accessing 3270 SNA host / mainframe applications
  • Can be used with wireless devices having ASCII terminal emulation capabilities
  • Accessing 3270 host applications from a UNIX system over a TCP/IP connection
  • Minimizing or eliminating local SNA connections to the mainframe while maximizing network performance
  • Screen scraping
  • Screen and data reformatting
  • Internet connectivity
  • Data communications needs to be encrypted with SSL

FEATURES

3270 Terminal Support ( LU2 )

  • 3277 Model 1 ( 24x80 )
  • 3278 Models 2 ( 24x80 ), 3 ( 32x80 ), 4 ( 43x80 )
  • 3279 Color Models 2 ( 24x80 ), 3 ( 32x80 ), 4 ( 43x80 ), 5 ( 27x132 )

3270 Printer Support ( LU1 and LU3 )

  • 3286 Model 1 and 2 ( up to 102x255 )
  • 3287 Model 1 and 2 ( up to 102x255 )

Session Support

  • Multiple 3270 sessions per system

Terminal and Printer Support

  • Terminal support using Terminfo/ Curses or X-windows
  • Print screen support

LU Pooling

LU Pooling can be used to control the assignment and usage of LUs so that the user does not need to know the LU name. LUs can be assigned by pool name, user name, TTY name, or LU name.

Local Session Support

TPS®/ TN3270 Client ( TCP/IP ) software provides local keystroke echoing. This feature maximizes overall performance by maintaining control of the session locally rather than sending each keystroke through the network. When the user requires a response from the host application, the entire screen is sent and returned as one transmission.

File Transfer

TPS®/ TN3270 Client ( TCP/IP ) supports file transfers to and from the host. It uses the standard IND$FILE protocol which is available on TSO™, CICS™, VM™, and other operating systems. It can be used to transfer both binary and record type files. File transfers can be automated via macros or the product’s EHLLAPI features.

Secure Socket Layer ( SSL ) Support

TPS®/ TN3270 Client ( TCP/IP ) can create a secure SSL connection to a SSL enabled TN3270 Server, over which data can be sent securely.

Protocol Support

TPS®/ TN3270 Client ( TCP/IP ) supports the standard TN3270E protocol for terminals ( LU2 ) and printers ( LU1 and LU3 ). TN3270E requires a TCP/IP connection to another system running a standard TN3270 Server which supports the Telnet 3270 protocol.

API Support

TPS®/ TN3270 Client ( TCP/IP ) also has an Extended High Level Language Application Programming Interface ( EHLLAPI ). This allows users to create their own applications to control mainframe applications or even automate file transfers. The API has all the basic functions, plus others, to allow complete control without user intervention.
