Rocket PASSPORT Browser-based Terminal Emulator

ibm 3270 emulator
Rocket PASSPORT provides a feature-rich browser-based 3270 emulator for IBM host access. PASSPORT includes both enhanced TN3270E emulation and basic TN3270 emulation, as well as IBM i (TN5250), UNIX/DEC (VT), and secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP). Our subscription based licensing program can reduce your 3270 emulator acquisition and maintenance costs significantly.

The Rocket PASSPORT Web to Host 3270 emulator is first installed on a web server (Apache/Tomcat, BEA, IBM WebSphere Application Server or Microsoft IIS). Once installed, users then download an ActiveX client to their desktop. The download only occurs once and does not reoccur until a new version of Rocket PASSPORT Web to Host is installed on the web server. The web server plays no role in the communication to the IBM host—all communication occurs between the 3270 emulator client and the host. User configuration files, macros, etc, can be stored either locally or on the central web server.  

Ideal for distributed environments

With Rocket PASSPORT Web to Host, remote or distributed Windows users are given all the tools they need for secure, reliable, productive host connectivity. Support of SSL and SSH security, VB Script for macro development, HLLAPI and an Object API for IBM application integration, comprehensive Windows cut and paste, and more are all standard in the Rocket PASSPORT 3270 emulator.

Deploy from IBM mainframe or Microsoft IIS Server

Administrators have the option of deploying the the Rocket PASSPORT 3270 emulator directly from an IBM mainframe or a Microsoft Windows Server running IIS.  If you want to deploy from the IBM mainframe, you will need to have Apache/Tomcat, BEA WebLogic or IBM Websphere Application Server running to publish the application.
