I have done the following:
The card is up and the TCP/IP interface is active. I have defined two interfaces, Loopback (127.0.0.1) and the box itself (192.168.1.109) both of which are active. I have defined a default route of 192.168.1.1 that is the router address -- there are no port restrictions or remote systems defined. However, when I try to ping either the router or any other PC on the LAN, the iSeries does not find them and it times out. I can ping the router from my own PC so it is not the router blocking the ping. Likewise, I can not ping the iSeries from my PC. I have a green light on the router for the port the iSeries is plugged into. I believe that implies the cable is OK. The box was previously on a LAN and worked, so it seems a bit bizarre that it is not doing so now. Do you have any ideas of what I might have missed or what I can try? Obviously, an iSeries that can't talk to a network is a very expensive door stop.
