Default iSeries Access

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry wasn't sure where to put this.....
We are about to purchase two Blackberry 8330s.
We currently use Cisco Systems VPN Client to access our network and use our iSeries (AS400) mainframe.
Is this possible to do on a Blackberry?
What software should we use?
Appreciate the help.

The BlackBerry doesn't have a 5250 Emulator built-in... which you'll likely need to connect to the AS400.
We use MobileSSH from Rove Mobile - Network Administration and Remote Access which has support for a 5250 connection. Works pretty well.

Are you also going to be using a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, or BlackBerry Professional Server? If so, you won't need the VPN client on the BlackBerry. You'll be able to connect to internal network resources via MDS.

To Rove's MobileSSH client. It takes some getting used to with respect to function keys, but it's been a life saver for me. You can setup multiple emulation sessions for different servers/LPAR's. Most of our developers use it, as well as the admins.

Default MobileSSH access through MDS

Hi,

How can you access the MobileSSH telnet host through the MDS? Is there way to forward the port from http to telnet and into the LAN?

Thank you,

Is Rove Mobile the ONLY 5250 solution for blackberry? I can't seem to find any others, and the fact that it would cost over $4000 for their product for 4 users for 3 years is pretty insane.

How can I configure the MDS to access the internal network? I have iSeries in the internal network and I would like to access the internal network using MDS.
Is there any instruction out there?

Thank you,

Thank you,
There's really nothing to configure. If MDS-CS is installed and the service is started, then you should be able to access internal resources using the BlackBerry handheld.
