Mainframe Fun

2014

 
 

OK, I don’t have one yet (soon...very soon) but I’m able to run IBM 370 Mainframe software on the Hercules emulator.  However, to get closer to the “real” experience, you have to use 3270 style terminals, tn3270 emulators just don’t CUT it (some of you might get the pun).


I finally got an IBM 3174 Establishment Controller configured properly to talk TCP/IP to the Hercules emulator running on my Mac.  Now the IBM 3179 terminals can be used to give me that 70’s/80’s feel of talking to a real IBM 370 mainframe.

Who doesn’t want an IBM Mainframe of their own?
