Accessing Mainframe/CICS

Overview

TEWeb is replacing BlueZone for connecitng to the Louisiana Tech mainframe environment. This is where the CICS which runs the University’s student information system is housed.

The new TEWeb product is an HTML5 based product so the experience should be the same for any web browser that supports HTML5. Any browser published in the last several years should be HTML5 capable.
