Greetings Experts,

I am looking for a way to embed a 5250 AS/400 emulator into a Windows Forms application.  Are there any controls out there already that you could recommend.  If such a thing exists, I would prefer VB.NET if possible.

Thank you and best regards,

Keith

Mocha offers some excellent alternatives, including a Windows ActiveX control and a Java Applet.  I've used Mocha's products for years, and have found them to be very reliable:

Haven't used this one personally, but it looks like it fits your requirements:

Another alternative you might want to consider is the AS/400 host-based System i Access for the Web:  http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/software/access/web/index.html

I've recommended Mochasoft's excellent TN5250 products for years due to their quality, price, and excellent "free upgrades for life" policy.  I was recently disappointed when I was unable to upgrade from their XP product to their Vista/Win7 product.

When I requested help from their tech support, I was told "That is not an upgrade, it is a new product."

As a result, I'm regretfully withdrawing my recommendation of this product after many years as a satisfied customer.

Disappointing when good companies go bad.
