TN5250 General Information

AS400 software required to run IBM's seminal AS400 mainframe is fully integrated into the system. AS400 applications can run on any single-processor machine due to AS400's virtual instruction set. The traditional AS400 system also features one or more IBM 5250 dumb terminals along with printers and system applications.

Today, however, it is more common to use PC or web based terminal emulation packages that can interpret and display 5250 data streams. TN5250 is one such terminal emulation package, and it is also an open source standard.*
