I have an old AS/400 server running OS/400 V3R7. I was earlier able to connect with it through Windows PC using NS Router. This AS/400 server was not being used for quite some time. Now when IPL was done and tried to connect the PC through NS Router, connection could not be made. However, connection could be made through TCP/IP. But unfortunately due to power failure while AS/400 was running, shut down was started as the UPS was not giving sufficient backup time. But before the server could shut down completely, UPS stopped and so AS/400 could not have complete normal shutdown. After this when IPL was done again, it is not getting connected with PC. The message comes that License server is not available though the PC is able to ping with the server after 'STRTCP' and 'STRHOSTSVR server(*ALL)' services were started from console. Can any one suggest me the solution? Also, only the display option is coming and the printer emulation option is not comming in the Communication screen now, whereas earlier I was able to create printer sessions also.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The AS400 caches most of its data and writes it to disk during an IPL. When your machine lost power, it also lost a lot of data. You should do a full system restore.

    Further, I am communicating with AS/400 server using Client Access. While trying to connect the PC to AS/400 server, it gives 'AS/400 license system is not available'. On giving 'cwbping <As/400 ip address) -t' from the PC, it gives :- pinging server Port Mapper successful pinging server as-central failed WinSock error: 10061 pinging server as-database successful pinging server as-dtaq successful pinging server as-file successful pinging server as-netprt successful pinging server as-rmtcmd successful pinging server as-signon successful Now, how to resolve WinSock error: 10061? On giving 'strhostsvr server(*all)' from console, it gives 'Unable to start host server Daemon jobs for IPX'. Can anyone suggest me the solution how to resolve these problems for connecting PC using TCP/IP? Also, how to connect PC using NS/Router? I have already added the DLC and NetBEUI protocols on PC. Plz help urgently. Thanks in advance.

    Review any joblogs from jos named QZSCSRVSD. If there are no joblogs, then make sure that job description QZBSJOBD in library QSYS has at least *MSG specified in its LOG() attribute. Then issue STRHOSTSVR *CENTRAL. (You might need to run ENDHOSTSVR *CENTRAL first.) After the STRHOSTSVR command finishes, verify that there is an active job named QZSCSRVSD or that the latest QZSCSRVSD spooled a joblog. If there is a spooled joblog. report any of its errors back here including message identifiers. If the job is active, try CWBPING again. Tom
