Connecting Putty to AS/400 server?

Hello -

I am trying to connect to an AS/400 server using PuTTY. The required Term-Type is IBM 3129-2 and the Device Name is: AXVDSP1. I am using Mocha TN5250 (Demo version) for Linux and there is an option to set these settings in.

But, in PuTTY, I can't find the settings to enter these. Is there any way to do this in PuTTY? I still want to use PuTTY because Its free. If Its impossible to use, then Oh well... then I'll continue to use Mocha tn5250

And please note: The Device Name is not the same as Hostname. I can access only the login screen, but for me to login properly, I need to set these two components in PuTTY....

That I am aware of Putty does not support doing 3270 nor 5250 which is what the AS/400 requires.

Ummmm....Ok, thanks, then it looks like I'll have to stick with Mocha then.

I double checked and Putty does NOT support 3270 or 5250.  There are thousands of telnet client products like Putty.  However, there are only a few that support IBM specific terminals and I don't know of any that are free.  Some are shareware or very inexpensive.  

One free way to do this is to install Cygwin and install the X-TN3270 client.

Another good one is BOS@NOVA.  It's not free, but it's a pretty rock-solid client that is still updated/developed.  We currently have about 120 licenses issued to our employees.
