Support for Microsoft SNA Server?

We are currently using EXTRA! 9.2/9.3 connecting to Microsoft SNA Server (Host Integration Server). Now I'm trying to use Reflection Desktop 16.1 and IP connections are working fine but can't find a place to connect to SNA Server. Didn't find anything from documentation either so is there support for SNA server in Reflection Desktop?

Re: Support for Microsoft SNA Server?

Reflection Desktop doesn’t offer direct SNA connections. SNA connections can be made through the MS SNA Server but Reflection would need to connect to the gateway via TCP/IP and have the gateway provide the SNA connection to the host. Extra! version 9.5 does support Direct SNA Connections. If you need further assistance, please contact Micro Focus support. support2@microfocus.com

Thanks,
Jeff

Thanks! I wasn't aware of Extra version 9.5 and and had the impression that the only way to have Windows 10 support was to go the Reflection Desktop instead but that was probably out of date news.

This was not always the case. Extra! 9.5 Windows 10 support was announced at a later time. If you have a current entitlement to the Reflection Desktop software, you should be able to download Extra! 9.5 from our download site under Reflection Desktop "Predecessor products."
