x3270 is an IBM® 3270 terminal emulator for the X Window System. It can be used to communicate with any IBM host that supports 3270-style connections over telnet. It can also communicate with hosts that use line-by-line ASCII mode to do initial login negotiation before switching to full-screen 3270 mode.
