[patch] Allow building tn5250 without SSLv2/SSLv3 support


Hi,

we recently patched the OpenBSD tn5250 port to build it without SSLv3
support.  We had already patched it to cope with the SSLv2 removal from
LibreSSL.

  http://cvsweb.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/ports/net/tn5250/patches/patch-src_sslstream_c

Here's a patch against the 0.17.4 release.  I tried to checkout the CVS
repo but it appears to be unavailable.

Cheers,

Yup, I think this is the problem.

You can also do that on most versions of Linux. For example, to run a
custom program on tty1, change /etc/init/tty1.conf like so:

Comment out this line:

#exec /sbin/getty -8 38400 tty1

And replace with something more appropriate:

exec /usr/local/bin/QSYS/signon tty1

On my system, signon looks like a AS/400 signon screen and handles
logins the same way - but you get the idea.

enhanced mode (linux)

hi!
i've got a couple of input maps which use FLDCSRPRG
i saw that those should work with +enhanced, i compiled tn5250 from cvs,
but enhanced mode was not activated

i tried to force it in curses/cursesterm.c, but forcing it there, enables
it, but makes the emulator crashes....

what is (if is there) the correct way to enable enhanced mode????

(or if i can havo some hint about where it should be patched/modified, i
can try to make it work....)

This is the SYS REQ key emulation, yes?

x5250 keyboard locks up

I'm back here to get some help. I'm currently using x5250. It was the
only option I had after spending months trying to configure tn5250 and
xt5250 to have a destructive backspace. When I had thought the
terminal emulator was working how I wanted it, I found another issue.
Every time an user inputs something they shouldn't, a warning message
appears at the bottom ("field requires numeric characters" or "only
characters 0 to 9 allowed" or "function key not allowed"...etc...) and
then the keyboard locks up and there's no way to move the cursor or
input anything or exit the screen. The only thing I've been able to do
to get it out of this state was bringing up the attn prompt by
pressing ESC and then pressing ENTER. This takes me back to a state
where I can input information. On a regular terminal, whenever the
keyboard locks up with an error, you can usually press CTRL to clear
it but I haven't found anything similar here
Is there anything I can do?
Thank you!

x5250 multiple sessions

Is there a way to open multiple sessions with x5250? I'm trying to
start three different sessions with different device names. Only the
first one opens up when I try. I tried opening different xterms and
running each session separately, but that didn't work out. 
Thank you for your help!

P.S: Solved my keyboard problem by using x5250. Thanks for the help.

Still.... Backspace issue

I have yet to fix my backspace issue with tn5250. When I try to
backspace the cursor deletes characters to the right, as opposed to
the left I am running tn5250 directly from xterm, not using xt5250,
(I'm typing tn5250 myAS400.....etc on the xterm). I don't know which
map file to modify to get it to work. You guys are my only resource.
Any suggestions?
