IBM i ACS (Access Client Solutions)

IBM i Access Client Solutions uses the same IBM i host servers as the other IBM i Access Family products and requires the same IBM i Access Family license (XW1) in order to use the 5250 emulation and Data Transfer features. An IBM i Access Family license is required to use 5250 and Data Transfer.

The preferred method of obtaining the laest version of IBM i ACS is to go to the IBM i Access Client Solutions and register an IBM user account and perform the download.

IBM-i ACS is JAVA based, so it can be installed on Windows, MAC & Linux devices. The legacy IBM Client Access is no longer supported. IBM Client Access & ACS can both be installed on the same PC and live quite happily next to each other. So what are you waiting for?
