Now you can maintain legacy Twinax devices like high-speed printers and “dumb terminals ” at remote sites. All devices appear as TN5250 devices on your AS/400, so you can connect any PC devices via dumb terminal emulation or by installing the eTwinax version of Bosanova TCP/IP or other IBM TCP/IP drivers to connect to the AS/400 over TCP/IP. Since the e-Twinax Controller can be connected to the AS/400 via the Internet, you can save a fortune in leased line expenses.

The Bosanova eTwinax Controller is OS V5R2 Certified and a 2003 APEX Award Winner. It was rated 3.79 (out of 4) in eServer Magazine, iSeries edition, February, 2003, with the author noting, "e-Twinax Controller helps you preserve your hardware investment in terminals and printers while you develop or expand your network infrastructure."
