In order for rich object information to be captured using the 3270 profile, HLLAPI stream information must be present. This would require an IBM compatible mainframe (or 5250 connected midrange) on the other end of the conversation. It is understandable why recording in 3270 mode yeilds no information as the information that would be sought in the conversation for recording is simply not present.
You're in a UNIX environment, VT100 is more appropriate.
Thanks for the info James, I understand that VT100 is appropriate for UNIX environment. But "obj_type" statements are generated even after having TE Add-in, that is what i am concerned about. Then why should we use TE Add-in?.
