Gcom Inc. has introduced a new Linux-based SNA gateway for Web-to-mainframe connectivity. Gcom hopes that the SNA gateway will simplify the task of connecting an IBM host with remote and LAN-connected computers/workstations – a task that may prove ideal for systems integrators, OEMs and end users. The gateway provides TCP/IP access to 3270 and 5250 applications via the TN3270E, TN3270, and TN5250 protocols by plugging into the host via QLLC/X.25, SDLC or token ring lines. Each gateway system comes complete with a standalone PC-based server, Gcom SNA and TN software (installed), synchronous and Ethernet LAN adapter cards, mouse, keyboard, monitor, and a one-year service/support agreement. Prices vary depending on configuration but start at US$4680 and are sold with Gcom’s 60-day money back guarantee. For more information contact Gcom at http://www.gcom.com.

Prices listed are in US currency.
