I've downloaded and am now using IBM i Access Client Solutions for 5250 access. I'm generally very happy with the way it works and we are getting close to replacing Client Access with this software for all of our users. However, before we do, does anyone know if there is any way in which I can permanently turn off column separators like I could in Client Access? We sometimes display data in colours other than green and anything yellow automatically displays with column separators as well.

Select 'Display Setup' from the toolbar
Scroll down and select 'Viewing'
Column Separators can now be set to either Line, Dot or Off.

We couldn't find it in the app store, so we copied the unzipped folder to a shared folder on our network. Then when we ran Start_Binaries/Mac_i386-32_x86-64/acslaunch_mac we got the error message "Error 404 Operation couldn't be completed".
Does anyone have any ideas?

They have one in the App Store, and it works quite well on iPad. You do need to get the paid version, though... the free version is "crippled" (does not have all of the keyboard options you'd need -- so it's rather worthless.)
For a browser solution... the company that I work for, Profound Logic Software, also has one called Genie. I prefer it over HATS, personally -- so if you're looking to go that route, it might be worth evaluating. There's a free 30 day trial here:
