Hi, I ran the command TRCCNN in AS/400 to trace the connection between our AS400 and Tandem. I was able to generate a report but I don't know how to read if there's a lost connection or unnecessary event with the network. Can you help me what are the key or code when searching at the tracing report if there's a timeout or connectivity issue. Also, please give me the meaning. Thanks!

    You need to study TCP/IP communications (or SNA depending on protocols, though SNA isn't covered by TRCCNN). This isn't something that can be put into a response or answer here. It is far too large of a subject. . Part of the problem is that there will be a potentially huge amount of 'data' that is part of the transmissions, and data bytes will often match text bytes from search strings. So for example, you might want to search for places where the RST bit is on. But the data might have the word "FIRST" in it. That might be a dumb example, but it is valid and it illustrates the problem that you seem to be asking about. . The point is that there is no value to you in having a trace until you know how to read one. And to read one correctly, you need to know TCP/IP. It's possible that you are collecting traces to send to IBM, and in that case they know how to read it. . If you want to learn, plenty of on-line courses exist, and there are plenty of books. Also, the RFCs that define TCP/IP are very useful references and you should be familiar with them. . Tom
