ESL Communications Server Terminal Emulator support has been tested with the following versions;
•IBM Personal Communications for Windows, version 5.6, distributed as part of Host Access Client Package V3 for Multiplatforms
•Rumba version 8.2 (Micro Focus)
•INFOConnect® Enterprise version 9.1 Attachmate Corporation
•Attachmate Reflection Standard Suite 2011
•BlueZone Mainframe Display
With version 13.20 we have introduced a new option, to allow certain Emulator packages, such as Attachmate's Reflections and BlueZone, to be used via the older 16bit data structures. We have also dropped the use of a separate debugging version of the ECS library (i.e. ESLCMDBG.dll). The log file feature is switched on by the value of the LogFlags parameter within the ECS initialization file. To aid the detection of errors locating the initialization file, the option to create a log is a default.
As well as searching the directories within the PATH, the ECS initialization file "ESLCMSRV.INI" can now be stored in the current directory, to allow for testing of different configurations. This is also useful, as the default location of the initialization file, the main ESL runtime directory, may be under "User Account Control", so cannot be amended quickly.
