    Unhappy Thinstation and AS400

    Hello,

    I'm making R&D for my boss about Thinstation.
    My test with the Ica connection is a success but now i'm becoming mad with my try with AS400 connection with tn5250.
    I have an error while connecting :
    Error opening terminal: linux.

    I'm using Thinstation 2.2.2

    Here is my buildtime part concerning AS400 connection

    # Session AS400
    SESSION_2_TITLE="AS400 - Session A"
    SESSION_2_TYPE=tn5250
    SESSION_2_SCREEN=1
    SESSION_2_TN5250_SERVER=172.16.40.1
    SESSION_2_TN5250_OPTIONS="env.DEVNAME=JDevBox1 +underscores env.TERM=IBM-3477-FC"
    SESSION_2_AUTOSTART=Off

    And here is my build.conf

    AS/400 is not really within the financial reach of many schools. Add in the fact that it also only runs OS/400, AIX or Linux, and the fact that schools run mostly Windows, the likelihood of someone being able to answer is quite quite low I'm afraid.

    Last I checked, if you are actually using an AS/400, and not an IBM Series i, this means you are using OS/400 - which is definitely not suitable for a school.

    Sorry.

    You're not the only one that has this issue. Its broken in the main distro. It's actually a very simple fix, but VERY frustrating. It's a broken symlink. I'm not the most Linux savvy person and had to ask for help from my BSD buddy. He found the problem. This means you can't use the TS-O-matic and have to build your own on your linux box, but that part's not difficult at all. I'll see if I can get more specifics on what link it is.

    If memory serves it was the one pointing to the config file from the the temporary location.
