not tn3270, but 3278 ? (SUMMARY!) - Sun Solaris

Gads. I was going to post the following as a question, but I shall instead post the question, AND the answer I discovered. Qu: I need to connect to an IBM mainframe. I have the x3270 program. Unfortunately, I need to emulate either a terminal type of either IBM 3278-5, or 3279-5. The IBM program rejects the x3270 emulation model, and only works with a higher-order emulation. Is there any solution for solaris? Answer: Actually, this is doable with x3270. There are many menu options to the program, but unfortunately, terminal type is not one of them. This lead me ...

    Default not tn3270, but 3278 ? (SUMMARY!)


    Gads. I was going to post the following as a question, but I shall instead
    post the question, AND the answer I discovered.

    Qu:

    I need to connect to an IBM mainframe.
    I have the x3270 program.
    Unfortunately, I need to emulate either a terminal type of
    either IBM 3278-5, or 3279-5. The IBM program rejects the x3270
    emulation model, and only works with a higher-order emulation.
    Is there any solution for solaris?


    Answer:

    Actually, this is doable with x3270. There are many menu options to the
    program, but unfortunately, terminal type is not one of them.
    This lead me to incorrectly assume the terminal type was fixed. This
    is not so.

    I got my connectivity functioning, by using

    x3270 -model 3279-5 [specialname]x.x.x.x:portnum

    Interesting. How about a telnet client for 5250 emulation? I have to use
    a SunPCI card with Windows for connectivity to the IBM iSeries (also known
    as AS/400).

    From online man page for x3270
    (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Peaks/7814/man/x3270-man.html):

    x3270 provides limited support for 5250 (AS/400) emulation. This is not
    native 5250 terminal emulation, but rather for use with hosts which
    allow a 3270 terminal to emulate a 5250. A 5250 keymap is defined,
    which maps the keyboard function keys to the 5250 emulators PA/PF key
    sequences, as well as redefining the Return key to use the special
    FieldExit action. The command line for 5250 support is:

    x3270 -model 2 -keymap 5250
