Evaluating Reflection ZFE

Reflection ZFE is a zero-footprint terminal emulator that lets you:

  • Forget about desktop software management and dependencies

  • Centralize control of all host access to mainframe applications for both user provisioning and security requirements

  • Gain insight into end-user host access using centralized metering and reporting to optimize computing resources

If you don’t have our software yet, visit https://www.microfocus.com/products/reflection/zfe/trial/ and fill out an evaluation request form. You’ll be sent an e-mail message with instructions to download and install an evaluation copy of Reflection ZFE good for 120 days. Using this evaluation copy you can open and close host sessions and maintain 5 active host connections at a time. The trial site has all the information you need to take the next step.

If you have questions about using the download site, see Using the Micro Focus Downloads Web Site (FAQ).

The installation wizard walks you through the installation process.

When you install Reflection ZFE, make sure that you are pointing to the Management and Security Server you want to use. MSS uses activation files to provide product-specific functionality. This file is included in the evaluation download and once Reflection ZFE is installed should be in place and ready to be activated. This is done in the MSS Administrative Console, under Configure Settings - Product Activation. Activation file names use this format: activation.<module_name>.jaw
