I've just upgraded from V3R7 to V4R3 and am trying to configure TCP/IP. We are going to be coming thru our Windows NT server to get to the 400. My question is, on the TCP/IP configuration menu on the 400 when I am working with TCP/IP interfaces, do I need to list the IP address of our server there? Also, we have a CISCO 2611 router installed for our network. Does that configuration need to be changed in any way to accommodate the AS/400 portion of the network? The error messages I'm getting when I try to connect with client access (CWBC01003, 10061 and 10054) seem to suggest this.
Your interfaces should only include 127.0.0.1, which is the default for local machine. You then need an entry like 22.214.171.124 to define your AS/400 to the network and to the Internet, if you so desire. You then need a route entry (Option 2 on the CFGTCP Menu) for your AS/400 to find the router. That entry would look something like:
Route Subnet Next Preferred Destination Mask Hop Interface *DFTROUTE *NONE 126.96.36.199 *NONE You should have an entry in the Host Table Entry screen (Option 10 on the CFGTCP Menu) for your local system that looks like: Internet Host Address Name 127.0.0.1 LOOPBACK LOCALHOST In addition, you should assign an entry for your router (giving it any name is fine) looking like: Internet Host Address Name 188.8.131.52 CI261101 If you are going to use your AS/400 on the Internet, you should also have an entry similar to: Internet Host Address Name 184.108.40.206 ESTUDIO400.COM
You should also check your domain entry to insure the DNS servers are entered.
