Commercial; see text.

Current Version: 4.3 / 2.0 (February 5, 2009)

A remarkably simple alternative to its higher-priced counterparts (such as NLynx's Mac Midrange products), this provides very nice 5250 emulation via TCP/IP, and it's only a 125K download.

While the "Classic" Mac OS version is now free, the Mac OS X version is priced at $25 for a single user ($250 for a site license), Mocha Mac TN5250 is a real bargain, too. The freely-downloadable version available below is fully functional, and should be used for evaluation purposes only.

While no information is available regarding what's new in version 4.3 (the latest "Classic" Mac OS version), version 4.2 added/changed the following:

  • Hidden text was displayed on print.
  • German EBCDIC character "@" was not correct.

Version 2.0 - the latest version for Mac OS X - makes the following changes:

  • Added 128 bit SSL support.

User Reviews

"I selected this because CelView is way too costly. I was able to buy a company license for $250. That's slightly more than the cost of one individual license for CelView. The company is Danish and purchasing is through SWREG in Minnesota. I had no problem purchasing with a PO. I've contacted the company twice via email I received a response within minutes. We tested with the trial version since last April and purchased in July. MochaMac is a hit with our users. They report that it is more streamlined to use, the preferences are easier to modify, and they can control the look of the "green" screen better. "

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
