Network World Fusion: SNA development ties Linux to mainframes

Thanks to Leo Comitale for
this link.

“Code released this week will let Linux users, for the first
time, access SNA mainframe resources.”

“Jay Schulist, the programmer in charge of the open-source Linux
SNA project, today is posting Linux tn3270 communications client
software on the Linux SNA Project Web site (samba.anu.edu.au/linux-sna/).
Linux users will be able to pull data from SNA applications, send
it over a TCP/IP backbone and incorporate it into Linux apps. An
industry standard, tn3270 technology delivers SNA 3270 data over
TCP/IP backbones.”
