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.
- 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
to do file transfer to and from the host via IND$FILE protocol
- Supports SSL ( Secure Socket Layer ) encryption
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
- Very easy installation and configuration
- From TPS® Systems — with
25+ year tradition of excellence in providing network software
and support for large global enterprises
TPS®/ TN3270 Client (TCP/IP) is an ideal solution
- Accessing 3270 SNA host / mainframe applications
- Can be used with wireless devices having ASCII terminal emulation
- 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
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
- Multiple 3270 sessions
Terminal and Printer Support
- Terminal support using Terminfo/ Curses or X-windows
- Print screen
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
- Keyboard remapping
- Extended data stream support including
color, character attributes, and extended highlighting
- Initialization and termination macros
- Light pen emulation
- Provides a trace facility for problem
- National Language Support
