Hi, people here are just starting to mumble about 3278 type terminals,
connected to (yeuch) IBM type main(larf larf)frame machines, connected to
unix boxes over the ethernet.

Apparently there are boxes to convert "channel" to tcp/ip, but this tn3270
thing is needed on the unix box.

Can anyone enlighten me please.

Thanks in advance, Ross Wakelin
