5250 Personal comm 5.0 using Host On-Demand 5.0 Redirection

Here's a way to use Personal comm 5.0 SSL 5250 emulation, printing and data access transfer via Host On-Demand redirector Version 5.0.

No Web server is required. All you need is a server that has a valid external DNS and SSL certificate by a know authority ex-verisign applied to the Host On-Demand redirector and three ports opened on the firewall that are encryption-enabled for the client and the redirector.

Host On-Demand Redirector configuration
Destination address 123.456.789.10
Destination Port 23
Local Port 9000
Security client side Destination address 123.456.789.10
Destination Port 449
Local Port 449
Security Passthru
Destination address 123.456.789.10
Destination Port 8478
Local Port 8478
Security Passthru
Configure the firewall for these Three ports.

Note: Port 9000 IP address is an example
Ports 449 and 8478 must be used as stated above. Security options must also be used.

Pcomm configuration:
IP address of the redirector and SSL enabled.

Now you have a fully functional Pcomm TN5250 emulator that will work from the LAN and Internet.
