My company uses an as400. I have a link to the server on my desktop. I downloaded TN5250 for iPad access. How do I get the necessary information from my desktop to configure the app on my iPad??

 

Thanks in advance

    All the information you need to use TN5250 is contained in an A/S400 configuration file. On your work computer you should be able to find this information by going START > IBM iSeries for Windows > Start or Configure Session.

    I really appreciate your help with this.  I was able to get everything setup and it works great.  Except for one little detail.  I am using Apples Bluetooth Keyboard with my iPad.  I am not able to use any of the function keys (F9 for example).  Is there a modifier that I must use in conjunction with the F key??

     

    BTW. Based on the success I am having my company is now looking at purchasing iPads for the entire sales staff.

     

    Thanks in advance

    I have realized that this only works when I am on the office network. Outside of the office I have to open an ipaddress in a web browser and log in. I then have to go to an rdp to log into the AS400. 1. What is a good free rdp app? Only need one connection and basic features including wireless keyboard compatability. 2. Is there a shortcut around having to access the Internet before using the rdp? A macro (??) I guess.

     

    Please keep in mind my computer knowledge is limited.

     

    Thanks in advance
