Hardware Requirements

It also attaches remotely to these systems via an IBM 5294 or 5394. Attachment is by the same type of cable as is used to attach an IBM 3196, 3179-2, 3180-2, 3197, and other IBM 5250 Information Display System devices.


The IBM 3476 attaches to the IBM S/36, S/38, AS/400 or remotely to the IBM 5294 or 5394 Remote Control Unit via IBM Cabling System, twinaxial cable, IBM shielded Twisted Pair or equivalent. To attach the IBM 3476 to the IBM S/38, the WSCE (Workstation Controller Extended) is required. To attach the 3476 to the IBM AS/400, a twinaxial WSCC (Workstation Controller Card) is required for local attachment.

The AS/400 has integrated language support and does not require RPQs.

Some languages require System or Remote Control Unit RPQs when attaching to the S/36 or S/38. For release level and further system information, refer to the following RPQs:
