Z and I Emulator for Web provides a sample HTML file of ready-to-use 3270, 5250, VT, and FTP emulator sessions pre-configured with Java auto-detection components. These sessions use the HTML-based configuration model and are provided to allow you to get Z and I Emulator for Web up and running and access your host systems quickly. To use these emulator sessions, take the following steps:
  1. Locate the clients.zip file in the your_publish_directory\samples\html directory, where your_publish_directory is the name of your Z and I Emulator for Web publish directory.
  2. Verify that the clients.zip file created by the Deployment Wizard is located in the directory in which you want to unzip the files (either in the Z and I Emulator for Web publish directory or in a special-purpose publish directory). If not, copy the .zip file to that directory.
  3. Use the DWunzip tool to unzip the contents of clients.zip to your publish directory. Refer to Using DWunzip for more information about how to use this tool.
  4. Use your browser to point to clients.html on your Web server, for example, http://host/alias/clients.html.
  5. Right-click the appropriate session icon and then select Properties to open session properties. Fill in the correct destination address, port, and any other connection properties of your host system. Click OK.
  6. Double click the session icon to start the session.
You can use the Deployment Wizard to customize the HTML file. For more information, refer to Using the Deployment Wizard.
