Thanks for your reply.

I think I'm going to look into x3270.

Although the 3270 is a thing of the past, I still have the occasional need
to access an IBM using that protocol.

So it has a new maintainer... good, but the
conversation somewhat stagnates.  When we go to the
cvsweb to note the last updates here:

It does not look like any radical changes have
occurred, so my guess would be nope.  Nobody has
bothered to get around to it.

Good luck
