Advanced PC-Host File Transfer


via BOSaNOVA firl trasfer software

via BOSaNOVA provides flexible and powerful file transfer between a midrange host and standalone, LAN-based, or remote PCs. No PC Support components are required, significantly reducing resource utilization. AS/400 and System/36 versions are available.
Sharing files between PCs and AS/400 or System/36 hosts offers a level of integration not attainable using emulation alone. With via BOSaNOVA's built-in capability to convert host data into popular PC file formats, incorporating data into PC spreadsheet and database applications is fast and easy.

Windows users will benefit most, with an advanced user- friendly front-end which is part of every BOScom Windows emulation product. Install the host software and all users already connected to that host are ready to go.

Note that via BOSaNOVA operates without any PC Support components. PC memory requirements and AS/400 overhead are minimal.
