We just installed CA/Express. We're running TCPIP and using a HOSTS file on the PC. We cant start a PC5250 emulation session in CA/Express but can launch Operations Navigator just fine. We see "Connecting to AS/400....on port 23", but immediately status changes to "Disconnected". First, we're not sure what should be entered as "System Name" when prompted to start PC5250 emulation: is it a) AS/400's TCP hostname or b) the System Name from DSPNETA? Well, we've tried both, and in both cases we see the same Connecting....then Disconnected sequence. The entries in the CA history log are different though. When we use the TCP hostname, the log shows wrong system name errors. When we use the DSPNETA system name, the log shows several "successful" messages about contacting ports on the AS400, and no "error" is logged----it actually seems ok but of course we end up disconnected so all is not well. Dont think its authority-rleated because we're using QSECOFR. Any ideas? Any ideas on how to isolate the problem? Thanks, -Al ----- Original Message ----- From: "Warren Block"
