PCI 5250 card software

Unread postby astouffer » Wed Jul 20, 2016 5:59 pm

I found a surplus seller who sells 5250 PCI cards for $10. They have the 15 pin connector on them so you can connect up a twinax splitter and run a software terminal. I have located drivers that appear to work in Windows 7 (32 bit). Now the next piece of the puzzle.

Does anyone have a copy of the IBM AS/400 Access software that can use these cards? I installed the version that is included with my copy of V5R2 but it only seem to support TCP/IP connections. These cards appear to be from the late 90s and the documentation I can track down mentions support for Windows 95 and NT. Thanks.

I think I have it somewhere, AFAIK it runs on win7, although I've used in only with xp.

I might be interested in a card like that, at least for 10 bucks. Are there any left?
