NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade wc3270 -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade wc3270 -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.

  • Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

x3270 is an IBM 3270 terminal emulator for the X Window System and Windows. It runs on most Unix-like operating systems -- e.g., Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris and Cygwin. It also runs natively on Windows.

x3270 runs over a TELNET connection, emulating either an IBM 3279 (color) or 3278 (monochrome). It supports:

  • The full TN3270E protocol
  • SSL/TLS (via the OpenSSL library) for encrypted sessions
  • APL2 characters
  • Non-English character sets, including Russian, Turkish, Hebrew and DBCS Chinese and Japanese
  • IND$FILE file transfer
  • NVT mode (emulating a color xterm)
  • A pop-up keypad for 3270-specific keys
  • A scrollbar
  • Printer session integration
  • Extensive debugging and scripting facilities

It does not yet support graphics. x3270 is distributed as source code, and can be used for free.

x3270 is available in several different forms:

  • x3270 is for use on an X graphics display
  • c3270 is a curses-based version for use on a dumb terminal (e.g., a serial terminal or a Linux console)
  • wc3270 is the Windows console version of c3270
  • s3270 is a displayless version for writing screen-scraping scripts
  • ws3270 is the native Windows version of s3270
  • tcl3270 is similar to s3270, but integrated with Tcl
  • pr3287 is for printer emulation
  • wpr3287 is the native Windows version of pr3287

Also available is x026, an IBM 026 Keypunch emulator.

Please Note: This is an automatically updated package. If you find it is
out of date by more than a day or two, please contact the maintainer(s) and
let them know the package is no longer updating correctly.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
