The 3270 host connection

The Blueworx Voice Response 3270 option gives Blueworx Voice Response the ability to communicate with a 3270 host by emulating a 3270 terminal. Terminal emulation enables voice application developers to capture screens and create 3270 servers, and it also enables the 3270 servers to communicate with an application on the 3270 host.

Before Blueworx Voice Response can communicate with the 3270 host, however, the system must be configured to include terminal emulation. In addition, a defined 3270 session is needed to start 3270 terminal emulation.
