PASSPORT Web to Host Offers ActiveX Terminal Emulation for Microsoft Browser

Zephyr is pleased to announce the support of Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 9 Release Candidate with its PASSPORT Web to Host terminal emulation product. PASSPORT Web to Host includes ActiveX-based 3270, 5250 and UNIX clients that run inside the Microsoft web browser.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 has a streamlined design, with fewer dialog boxes to click through, more intuitive navigation, and many new features that speed up your web browsing experience. Features like Pinned Sites let you pin your favorite website directly to the taskbar for one-click access. Other features, like hardware acceleration, deliver an all-around faster browsing experience. With Internet Explorer 9, websites perform and feel more like the programs you use every day on your PC.

For many large organizations, mission-critical applications continue to be hosted on IBM System z (mainframes), IBM System i (AS/400 and iSeries) and UNIX servers. Secure, reliable access to these applications is essential and the Zephyr PASSPORT terminal emulation offers best-of-breed communication between Microsoft IE and these important legacy platforms.

The Zephyr PASSPORT Web to Host terminal emulation software has been tested with Windows IE 9 RC and found to be fully compatible. PASSPORT, which includes advanced TN3270E, TN5250E, VT, SCO ANSI and Wyse host access, is often used as an alternative to terminal emulation solutions from Attachmate, IBM and Micro Focus.
