Support for 3270, 5250 and VT Emulations Inventu Viewer+ includes solid Telnet-based (Internet) support for the popular terminal procotols. IBM Mainframe (3270), IBM iSeries/AS400 (5250), DEC/VAX or UNIX (VT100, VT220 or VT320) as well as ViewPoint and Wyse. Inventu Viewer+ is the only browser-based HTML emulator with support for these protocols due to our pioneering use of AJAX and WebSocket techniques along with a proprietary HTTP sync datastream.
Configurable colors and fonts A Inventu Viewer+ server can be configured to support any number of color styles (a number of style sheets are provided and customers can modify these or create new ones). In addition, the use of a selection of non-standard fonts is made possible by font embedding technology.

If you would prefer to standardize all of your users on the same colors and fonts, this is easily "locked down" at the Inventu Viewer+ server.

Full keyboard support The full PC keyboard may be used to emulate host keys. In addition, you can quickly and easily customize the keyboard control for your entire user base or for one user. Also, keyboard buffering or 'type ahead' functionality is supported. Users can type input before screens are visible, as they are often used to doing with terminal-based applications.
Web browser, thin client access Access your mainframe, AS400 and Unix applications via any popular browser, on any device. The Inventu Viewer+ terminal emulation uses pure HTML and Javascript, with no plug-ins or Java applets required.

Inventu Viewer+ is hosted on the full function Microsoft IIS platform, enabled with full .NET extensions and integration. This provides the ability to integrate with any security and authentication system.

Report Printing The Inventu Viewer Device Printing support is available for all protocols. For 3270 and 5250 emulated printers, printed reports are converted to an HTML print document that appears ready to print or save to PDF when ready.

For ASCII printers, which typically include the PCL printing protocol, a simple configuration at the server will route the PCL through a PCL-to-PDF converter. Once the print job is ready (as PDF) it will be displayed at the user's browser, ready to print, save to disk or email.

Double-Byte Character Set (DBCS) Starting in the year 2020, Inventu Viewer supports the Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages when running in a TN5250 session. The characters are directly translated to UTF-8 using the IBM DBCS internal protocol for screen representation of these languages.

3270 support will be provided to the first prospect or customer that requests it (at no charge).

Macros and Extensions The Inventu Viewer WebFlow macros are easily created by simply recording the entry and display of multiple screens. Users can then select a quick save or a more extended coding of how the macro should run.

The Inventu server extensions allow the creation of server-side macros as well as an event-driven interface, supporting any .NET language.

Shared user licenses While traditional emulators licenses are "per client", Inventu Viewer+'s licensing is "per concurrent session". If you have a staff of 100 potential users and at any peak time, only 50 users are accessing the host application, then only purchase a 50 "concurrent user license" of Inventu Viewer+. Your needs expand and now you have 75 concurrent users accessing the host - no problem. Contact us to purchase an additional 25 concurrent user licenses and we will send you a new 75 concurrent user key that you can update very quickly on your Inventu Viewer+ server.
Centralized session management Provided with the Inventu Viewer+ Service is a set of administration applications that may be separately installed on any machine from which access to the live Inventu Viewer+ Emulation Service is desired (such as an administrator's desktop). These applications then access the service through a configurable HTTP port to enable remote administration. The Administration Applications include the following functions:
  • View active or available sessions and status
  • Start/Stop a session
  • View a live session in a special administrator's emulation window -- enables both debugging as well as help desk capabilities
  • Configure the service using tree-view property sheets
  • Start/Stop/Clear Application Tracing
  • View Application trace file which optionally includes buffers, screens, API calls and internals
