x3270 emulator


Hey guys...

I am trying to use the x3270 emulator to connect to OS400 based system. I can connect fine and navigate through all the menus perfectly. I just have one problem. I can't figure out how to scroll down on pages that have the more... at the bottom of the screen.

In the windows emulators it is always PgUp and PgDn, but for some reason the emulator doesn't seem to support that.

Does anyone know how to scroll? I haven't been able to find any documentation on this problem as of yet.

I am still really new to the OS400 system but I am trying to learn and would like to try it through linux..if I can

The other thing that I am curious about is the running of multiple sessions. In the emulator I have for windows (mocha), you can issue the sysreq to start a new sessions. Can you do the same with x3270?


Any help would greatly be appreciated..

thank you in advance


cheers

todd

Please post in only one thread. Multiple threads don't get you more better answers.

I wouldn't call this a duplicate (if you're referring to the other x3270 post just down the list).

In the other post he's answered someone else's question (and mantioned it doesn't work perfectly for him), and here he's specifically explained the problem and asked for help.

I think that's actually the way he should have gone about it rather than hijacking another thread (there's no reason for him not to have responded to the other thread).


Sorry bourne - can't help with your problem though.

Thank you for your responses ...

and thank you billymayday for the defense

I haven't posted this message more than once though actually Quakeboy02. As billymayday pointed out I answered someone elses question. I have a few questions of my own about this program so I posted my own post about it. To my knowledge there is nothing wrong with doing this. I thought a double post consisted of me posting the same message multiple times on a forum.. I have only posted this once.

Anyways thank you billymayday for your post.. I hope that I am able to find something that can help


cheers

You're right, I'm wrong. I apologise.

Have you tried looking for the keyboard map for the program? It's been a long long time since I used an X3270 program.

No apology needed whatsoever .. I just don't want to cause any problems in the forums, so I just wanted to clarify my post for you.

I have indeed looked at the keyboard map for this program. Unfortunately I couldn't make heads or tails of the options that are available. I searched specifically for something that would allow me to scroll on the pages but there was nothing that seemed to be specifically geared towards that. Its kind of strange that the scrolling doesn't work out of the box.

You wouldn't happen to have any idea what I might be looking for in terms of what option I would want to bind to a key to enable the scrolling?


cheers

Have you tried F7/F8 and F10/F11? Also, isn't there a picture of the keyboard in the upper right? Have you tried clicking that to see if the popup helps?

Also be sure you run "man x3270".

I seem to vaguely remember having to run x3270 with the +sb option. But, it's been a long time, like I said.

Hmm this I have not done yet actually. I will have to look into this option and give it a try and I will get back to you. Thank you for your response

I have played around with the image of the keyboard a bit but it doesn't seem to function properly. At least as far as I can tell it doesn't. Being so new to the system though it could be working and I am just not noticing. I will have to really tinker around with it more so I can get you some solid facts.



cheers

Well I tried to run the program with the option you suggested and it didn't provide me with the ability to scroll

And with the F key options they don't work either because within the program itself those keys are all assigned their own functions..

So I am still at a stand still trying to figure out how to scroll



cheers
