Re: Talking of 1-2-3

I have actually seen this in use and it worked just fine once the user got us to it.

The 3270 was effectively a text only web page and worked very much like a browser with java script turned off.

Incidentally I once installed some software in a branch office in Lisbon that was connected to London via Madrid on an absurdly cobbled up network.

It worked acceptably for the 3270 apps, but supporting my unix software remotely was bizarre. It echoed any command you typed at one character every two seconds. It was so distracting the only way to get anything done was NOT to look at the screen.
