Glink for Android
Glink for Android is a port of our immensely successful and popular Glink for Windows product that has been chosen by more than 600,000 people world wide for connection to legacy host applications from Windows platforms. Glink is a fast, efficient and highly functional terminal emulator for connecting Android Tablets and Smartphone devices to legacy business applications running on Bull, IBM, UNIX and Linux host systems.
Glink for Android is an App for terminal emulation and communication with legacy host systems. It includes terminal emulations for the Bull, IBM, Open Systems and Public Information environments. It uses standard TCP/IP protocols for communications with the legacy systems, and can secure all protocols with the use Secure Socket Layer (SSL/TLS) encryption. The VT emulation can be secured with SSH protocol. For Bull legacy systems, Glink offers the extremely efficient G&R/Ggate protocol in addition to TNVIP and Telnet.
The IBM 5250 emulation, that is used to access applications running on IBM iSeries (AS/400) systems, supports Double Byte Character Sets (DBCS) like Chinese, Japanese and Korean and TN5250 Enhanced Auto Sign-On.
Glink allows you to have multiple concurrent host sessions. They can be any mix of terminal and print sessions, to the same or different hosts and applications. Glink can be configured to automatically connect at start-up. Configurable hotspots for function keys, numbers, characters and URLs, and a configurable multiline toolbar where you put frequently used operations, recorded as macros, and function keys makes Glink a very powerful tool.

Installation and configuration: Glink for Android is a client App, downloaded from the Google Play Store or G&R's Webshop and installed and configured on each user’s device. The configuration export/import feature allows administrators and power users to prepare customized configurations (including customized toolbars) and distribute them to other devices/users. Access to configurations can optionally be protected with a password.
Security: Glink for Android supports SSL/TLS for encryption of all host communication. The VT emulation supports SSH for encrypted host communication. Both direct communication with the SSH Daemon and tunelling of the Telnet protocol is supported. Username/password or private keys can be used for authentication. Connection macros can be protected by a password
Print: Glink supports both print screen and printing from the host in all emulations. Either in separate 3270, 5250 or DKU/VIP print sessions or in the terminal session from Unix/Linux hosts and from Bull hosts when the Ggate- or TNVIP- server merges the print into the terminal session
Glink for Android is now available on the Google Play Store and in G&R's Webshop as four different apps:
