Is there any way you can obtain diagnostics that might help? Perhaps this
program has a verbose setting or writes messages to syslog. Or maybe you
can run it in a debugger and obtain a trace.

Side note: there's also net/tn5250j. It requires Java, which may or may
not be an option for you.

Hope this helps,


I'm not completely useless, I can be used as a bad example.
