[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/8] s390x: basic support for 3270 devices

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/8] s390x: basic support for 3270 devices
Date: Wed, 22 Feb 2017 13:15:19 +0100

Initial support for channel-attached 3270 devices (yes, these are the
classic 'green-screen' consoles). Acks/reviews for the telnet integration
(tn3270) are especially solicited.

To actually make use of this, you need a 3270 emulator (for example,
x3270). You can use the 3270 in a Linux guest either as a console
(probably not very useful) or as an additional tty (described below).

The 3270 feature is experimental and it only supports one 3270 device,
Linux as guest, x3270 as client. It doesn't support live migration,
SSL/TLS encryption, or x3270 client resizing when re-connecting. Multiple
commands in one inbound packet, which are usually caused by pressing the
"Reset" key during poor network traffic, are not supported right now.
Currently, we terminate the connection in that case.

Configure a device, for example with the following command line:
  -chardev socket,id=char_0,host=,port=23,nowait,server,tn3270 \
  -device x-terminal3270,chardev=char_0,devno=fe.0.000a,id=terminal_0

The guest needs to be configured in the following way:
- Make sure that the 3270 channel device is activated (e.g. via
  chccwdev -e 0.0.000a for the example above).
- Start a getty on the respective device node under /dev/3270/ once
  it shows up.

After starting the guest via qemu, connect x3270 to <host ip>:<port>.
