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.

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

Never mind, just happened to figure it out

hi josh, your setup should be correct. second part of the setup must be done in ISPF settings ( terminal and user parametr) :
terminal characteristics
screen format - 3.Max
terminal type - 3.3278

hope this help

Best Mac TN3270 Emulator

about ZOC · · Helpful Not helpful

I've been using ZOC for over 5 years for daily TN3270 access, from a Mac.

ZOC on a Mac replaced Attachmate Extra on the PC - If I ever have to go back to a PC, then I would simply switch to the Windows version of ZOC without hesitation. I also tried other Mac TN3270 emulators, most of which seemed dated and/or a bit flakey!

ZOC does everything I want from a 3270 emulator and has worked flawlessly. Support has always been fantastic and responses are almost immediate - even requested new functionality has been added almost immediately.

New updates are released regularly, so it is nice to know the product is being continuously improved.

I've recommended ZOC to all my coworkers using Mac's and all have switched and I'd have no hesitation in recommending ZOC to anyone needing 3270 access.

This application is probably the best commercial option for Mac OS X for managing Telnet/SSH/Serial connections. Yes, you can use Mac OS X builtin Terminal or Screen applications, but if you manage a large number of connections this app is great at keeping them organized, very flexible.
SecureCRT is the best option for Windows in my opinion, but the Mac OS X version of Secure CRT doesn't quite feel right, and it's more expensive.

With ZOC you get access to amazing support as well, Markus responds directly to support requests, and in the few instances where I have had problems, it's been taken care of quickly.

ZOC is very good and powerfull alternative to putty and native terminal
It combines telnet, ssh, tn3270, direct serial and many more terminals in one
and the best of it - support rexx
I found it very handy in my everyday job.

Beside this support is very good - one of the best I ever met.
