    TN3270 emulator on Linux LTSP




    Hello; I need a TN3270 emulator installed on my Linux Terminal Server so users can connect via IP to our Mainframe.

    Any suggestions?

    Dale,
    a little more onformation please.

    How did you install? Was there an install problem? Are there any error messages? What happens? Do you mainframe network sysprogs see anything at their end when you try?

    TN3270 Emulator

    Nerderello;

    It was sent as a zip from Ericom the company that supplies the app. I unzipped it and ran the script to install/configure. It was during this process that the errors occured. I sent the output generated during the install process to their Linux Engineering staff.

    They indicated that they were evaluating the output. I included it just in case you can help.

    unpleasant. Looks like a problem with the install script.

    One thing that stands out , though. Were you logged on as root AND in X (the gui) at the time, ie. had you a terminal window open while you ran the install script.

    Also, and I'm only thinking out aloud here, are there any README or INSTALL files within the zipped file that you were sent?

    Sorry, but apart from that I can't really help.

    Yes... I was logged in as you suggested. Should I have logged in as root from the shell and executed the script?
