We have a Twinax to IP converter in a remote site that has stopped responding. I need to remotely determine the IP address of this unit so i can manage it. It's a single unit that allows a single twinax printer (IBM 6400) to talk over TCP/IP Ethernet. I know the address of the printer, but not the converter which i could manage via a web browser if i knew the address. Is there a way to find the IP address of all devices on a network without having to know the name or address?
The unit is by Better Online Solutions and is an e-TwinPrint. I've tried their discovery tool that came with the unit but it doesn't find anything. I can ping the printer address, but when i issue a STRPRTWTR command, the system times out before it can connect to it.
It used to work when we were on OS/400 V5R2 and stopped working after we upgraded to i5/OS V5R4 (or somewhere in between).
