I use this software about a month. Originally used trial version, and then purchased a license.

An excellent and powerful program. I use it as an alternative putty and native terminal. Telnet, ssh, tn3270, serial connections and it's all on the Mac. Special thanks for rexx scripts, very much help. Individual approach to everything.

The ZOC provide to me one of the best connection to zOS mainframe - telnet and ssh as well. I really appreciate full control over setup of screen resolution aspecially tn3270 - i'am using 160x62 for administration view. The next cool thing are tabs. Finally most important thing is osx and win installation - i'am using both and the osx installation is the best i've ever used.

How were you able to setup 160x62? I can't seem to get the session profile configured correctly for that. When I edit the TN3270 model size to be DYNAMIC with 160 x 62, it creates a 160 x 62 screen but only uses the top 80x24

The product exceeded my expectation but really this review is about customer support. In an age where companies often do not want to talk to you once a sale is made, this company is different. ZOC worked great on my old computer but was not installed on my new computer. I had lost my license and receipts from three years back. I emailed support of my problem with a small amount of information as to license owner and date of purchase. The response was immediate and exactly what I needed to allow me to get back to work. Thank you ZOC! For the record, I do not know anyone at this company and do not own their stock.

I'm a software developer and its my tool of choice when doing any kind of communications development or debugging. Logging and binary capture of incoming and outgoing data has helped me solve all kinds of issues.

    The installation process is insecure and the feature set leaves a lot to be desired.
