    It would be great to have a web-based 5250 emulator that runs alongside, but separate, from the Navigator for I - IBM, please consider!

    Our "Remote" access when working from home, traveling, offsite, etc... is by using a Virtual Desktop Image and that VDI session can only allow applications that are browser based. ACS as you recommended, is a Java based app, not browser.

    We have a secure strategic solution for 5250 emulation today already through the Access Client Solutions support. At this time we have no plans on delivering a web based 5250 solution.
