Celcorp, a company that specializes in Macintosh to legacy connectivity, has released Celview for Macintosh 3.0.2, a new version of their terminal emulation product.
Celview, a Carbonized 5250/3270 emulator that runs on Mac OS X, also supports Mac OS 8.1 and higher. It handles tn5250e, and tn3270e, which are telnet protocols for communicating with AS/400, and mainframe computers either directly or through SNA gateways from IBM and Microsoft, It also performs file transfer via FTP, IND$FILE and PC Support protocols. In addition it can print from the AS/400 or Mainframe.
Version 3.0.2 offers FTP enhancements and other improvements, including compatibility with Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar and 10.2.1. FTP has had EBCDIC <-> ASCII translation added as a new feature.
Also, an option has been implemented to support more fonts than just Noiro for screen display — but is currently only provided for the “adventurous,” the folks at Celcorp say. Hold down the option key as you select the “Sessions” -> “Display” menu item, and you’ll have a choice of any font for screen display. This won’t change the font used for the OIA line and you may want to turn off “HotSpots” in the Celview Preferences. Also, for proper display, the font must be monospaced and the bold version of it must be exactly the same width as the plain version.
Celview has a pricing structure that can be viewed online. Volume pricing and competitive upgrade pricing is available.
