 CUPERTINO, Calif., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- DESCRIPTION: Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) announced today it is currently shipping its SNA.ps 5250 emulation software package, which allows Macintosh users to access applications residing on IBM's Application System/400 (AS/400) family of midrange computers. SNA.ps 5250 is the first Apple product, developed under the Apple/IBM Enterprise Networking Initiative, to be sold by both Apple and IBM (NYSE: IBM).

 The SNA.ps 5250 GC (Gateway Connection) is also available for connecting a single Macintosh computer on an AppleTalk network to AS/400 systems through the SNA.ps Gateway version 2.0, which is also currently shipping. Both products work with the Apple Token Ring 4/16 NB Card or Apple Serial NB Card installed in any Macintosh II or Macintosh Quadra computer, supporting directly connected or AppleTalk distributed 5250 sessions.
