I am trying to get operations console for AS400 working on my PC.
I have a cable directly connected to the PC from the AS400.
I am getting a status of 'Console connecting' but nothing appears to be happening after that.
The OS/400 version of the AS40 is 5.3
The PC operating system is Windows 2000
Any help appreciated.
