Personal Communications and AS400


Neil Waldhauer:
I'm trying to set up Personal Communications to talk to the AS400. Using an AS 400 is easier with the IBM 122-key keyboard. But if I hook it up and configure AS400.KMP, I get a keyboard where the normal keys work, but the extra keypad does not.

This is on the eCS 2.2 beta 2.

What am I forgetting to do?

Silvan Scherrer:
I wonder why you still use Personal Communication to connect to a AS400. Is the box really still an AS400 or is it a newer Power system?
As with newer Power systems you can download a very nice java app from IBM. And this one really works great.
I removed all Personal Communication stuff from all my PC's and added the java part.

If you need more information about that write me a e-mail.


Neil Waldhauer:
Thanks, Silvan. It turns out all I needed to do was recreate the keyboard file. It's working now.

This is for a legacy system supporting retail stores, and the OS/2 machines I'm replacing are probably 12-15 years old. The AS400 is likely to be about that age.
