Transferring a specific user on the system

I'm writing an initial program that transfers a specific user to our fallback system. The user is logging on from a 3270 terminal, and the initial program is checking whether or not the user is allowed to run on the production machine. If the user is not allowed, the initial program will issue an STRPASTHR to the fallback machine, which is working OK. The problem comes when I want to use F3 for exit and F12 for cancel(F7 and F8 are working fine for page up/down) on the fallback machine.

Display of the device description on the production machine:

Opt                   Device                       Type 
                     QPADEV0494                   3278 

Display of the device description on the fallback machine:


Opt                   Device                       Type 
                     QPADEV002J                   5251    

Without looking at the program, it looks like you are getting to the "fallback" machine OK. You might be having an issue with keyboard mapping with the emulation product you are using. Check out the keyboard mapping help in your emulation product. I'm sure you will find what you need to do so that F3 and F12 will work.
