Quick3270 is terminal emulator software for mainframes 3270 and 5250, emulating the functions of these terminals on Windows computers, allowing users to access applications designed for mainframes, transfer FTP files and record user actions.
Quick3270 supports multiple simultaneous connections as well as creating connections between PCs and zSeries or iSeries workstations, connecting to IBM terminals, SNA servers, UNIX, OpenVMS and Linux, allowing users to control software directly via the COM interface.
As already mentioned, the Quick3270 is capable of connecting to many display models of IBM terminals, allows displaying custom sizes, is compatible with vector graphics and programming icons, supports graphical emulation, establishes connections via IPv4 or IPv6 protocols.
ZOC software is also ideal for terminal emulation with similar features, ZOC is capable of terminal emulation, fast server connection, management of multiple simultaneous connections as well as support for custom configuration, automation of multiple processing processes and integration of scripting language with more than 200 commands
In addition to the TN3270 and TN5250, the Quick3270 also allows users to establish Microsoft Host Integration Server connections, link computers to SNA servers and is compatible with Windows Terminal Server and Citrix XenApp as well as allow remote connections to OpenVMS, Linux and Unix workstations.
In addition, Quick3270 supports IND$FILE and FTP data transfer, ensuring stable operation of data transmission between computers and remote hosts thanks to the ability to integrate emulator APIs. Quick3270 supports the Windows high-level programming language interface and the standard and enhanced EHLLAPI interface with a built-in recorder that automates cycle processing operations and launches macros created with IBM Personal Communications or Attachmate Extra software.
In addition to the option to download Quick3270, there are many other software on the market that offer similar features. One of them is the open source project Terminology For Linux, Terminology For Linux software designed and developed for the Enlightenment desktop environment on the Linux kernel operating system, supports Wayland and X.Org display servers, supports file paths, URLs, link handling, inline display of linked content, Xterm support, backgrounds, rxvt, etc.
