Winsock error 10061

Can you suggest a way to remotely start a Windows workstation re-image (Ghost, DriveImage) from an image on the iSeries?

Winsock error 10061 is signaling "connection refused" error. This is probably because the data base server is not listening to request and thus connect fails.

Use strhostsvr *all to activate the data base server, this will most likely solve your problem.
