Working with Operations Console

My company would like to change our master console from a dumb terminal to a PC, with PC Anywhere installed. Our current master console has a twinax connection. Is this possible with V4R5? We're going to upgrade to V5R2 and don't want to purchase any new hardware. Can you point me in the right direction?
You are looking for operation console capability. Operations Console is an installable component of Client Access Express for Windows. It allows you to use a directly cabled LAN-attached or remote PC to access and control an iSeries 400 console and control panel. More details can be found here.
