Software Requirements

Installation Notes

If you are using terminal emulation (i.e. Wings or BTerm), please be sure to update your DataGate clients to 15.0.x.0 (Wings 9.0.x.0 or WebPak 15.0.x.0) or newer on both your development and deployment machines before installing this new DataGate for IBM i server. Non-interactive connections (i.e. those not using the terminal emulator) done with older DataGate Clients will work, but any attempt to start a connection with 5250 emulation will require the client to be running at least version

NOTE - If you are installing this version to support ASNA Browser Terminal, install it on a library and port separate from any existing production DataGate instances.
