Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

Yes, this really looks very professional ! Congratulations ! Well done ! Regarding my older posts - there was either no reply (IBM) or I was provided with information we already have access to. So no new information on this, sorry. But I will continue to search for the document eegru is looking for ...

Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

Relating to eegru's request for "5250 Information Display to System/36 and System/38 System Units Product Attachment Information". Since there was no answer from IBM yet I have posted a request for that document to a german IBM i / AS/400 user-group. Eventually this will help since I already got som...

Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

Hi, here's a quick update - your comment on an "auto-configuration-feature" made me searching the net ... On this link : https://www.netphantom.com/APIDocumentation/se/entra/phantom/server/tn5250e/DataStream5250.html I found some information that you can query the terminal about its settings etc - a...

Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

Hi, what an effort - I studied all that you wrote and I was astonished how long the "short piece of Python"-software is. At the moment I have printed out the code and I am analyzing what it does, so I can eventually provide you with clues etc. Will get back to you after the weekend. BTW - I found so...

Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

Hi, thanks for the detailed clarification ! Yes, these are major stumbling-blocks for not using this chip, I agree with you ! So simply continue with the setup you have developed and already invested time and money. :-) In some older post you mentioned that there is some python (?) code, that is req...

Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

This morning I read the documentation again and I stumbled accross the "DP8344B Biphase Communications Processor"-documentation, which I downloaded. Regardless of the current state of this project (which I fully support), wouldn't it be easier to use this "device", as it (as far as I understand) pro...

It seems that there is some demand for this document and there is no way to find it online. To assist the other readers here ...

Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

Hi there ! Thanks for all the information - now I can see how this all works - but this doesn't matter - I am still interested and eventually we can speed up the python code over time - don't worry - the most vital point is that it works after all - albeit a bit slow as you mentioned. Currently I am...

Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

Hi, this is great - and 80€ for the complete box ("plug-in ready") is not a problem - given the time, effort and "brain-power" you have invested into this project and that it is not "mass-produced".... Regarding the operation - I read the documentation you provided in this document and as far as I u...

Re: IBM 5251 terminal USB conversion (but not what you think)

Yes, this is really an awesome project - this is a piece of hardware I am looking for for ages..... Those Twinax Terminals are now quite old, but given the quality of the IBM Hardware they are mostly in good shape ! (albeit sometimes a bit yellowed...) You wrote "but I suppose that people that could...
