SNACONS: Remote consoles for OS/390

What is SNACONS?

Click for full-size screenshot! SNACONS™ is an OS/390 VTAM application which provides operator consoles to any 3270 terminal on your network. By logging on to SNACONS from any 3270 screen on your SNA network, or from any TN3270 screen on your TCP/IP network, authorized users can obtain a console which is almost indistinguishable from a regular OS/390 MCS console.

Traditionally, OS/390 MCS consoles require costly and cumbersome 3174 controllers, bulky channel cables, and expensive 3270 screens with co-axial cabling. SNACONS can allow you to replace many of these consoles by emulation sessions on PC or Unix workstations attached to your existing local area networks.
