NETMANAGE 3270 EMULATOR TO SHIP WITH MICROSOFT'S SNA SERVER.
The NetManage 3270 Terminal Emulator provides Microsoft customers with 3270 access as well the ability to run multiple 3270 sessions on a Microsoft Babylon Server client.
"We are pleased to extend the capabilities of Microsoft's industry leading SNA gateway through our best-of-breed host access solutions," said Peter Havart-Simkin, senior vice president of strategic development at NetManage. "With NetManage PC-to-mainframe products, Microsoft customers have easy access to corporate information anytime, anywhere."
"By including the NetManage 3270 Terminal Emulator with our Host Integration Solution code-named `Babylon,' we are providing our customers a valuable, cost-effective tool for maximizing their existing enterprise computing infrastructure," said Chris Olson, Microsoft group product manager.
The 3270 applet will be included with all shipping versions of Microsoft's future SNA Server product code-named "Babylon." The 3270 Applet features a direct hotlink to NetManage's web sites to provide customers quick access to valuable product information, and to enable customers to easily upgrade to NetManage's full-featured ViewNow Mainframe 3270 solution or to NetManage's market-leading Rumba 3270.
ViewNow Mainframe provides Windows 95/98/NT and Windows 2000 users an extensive set of features for the IBM mainframe, including robust emulation capabilities, printer support, and file transfer. ViewNow Mainframe also includes seamless Windows integration and context-sensitive help to aid mainframe access for all users.
