    I don't think any ports need to be open. That is, if you have an emulator that supports STRPCO and the emulator has a session established, then you already know that the ports are open. AFAIK, STRPCO communicates through the active emulator session. I've never seen anyone need to open additional ports. (But others might have seen problems.) Do you have a problem? Tom

    firewall has been setup, since then our program which has strpco/strpccmd imbedded no longer running.

    Note that ports may be opened or closed in both inbound and outbound directions. The firewall may allow remote systems to send in one direction while blocking the same path in the opposite direction. Is this a hardware firewall for the network or software firewall for the PC? It may require different methods to investigate and/or fix. What kind of firewall is it? Tom

    It's a hardware network firewall. We've opened the following ports on both ends as-signon/8476 as-svrmap/449 as-central/8470 telnet/23 as-file/8473 as-database/8471 137 138 139 445

    As of yet, I haven't captured any connections through anything but the normal ports, neither on the PC side nor the AS/400 side. But I've only been trying basic NETSTAT functions. I'll try some communications traces beginning with a simple STRCMNTRC on the AS/400 to see if anything else shows up. If you can do it on your system, you might see a result before I can get an environment running. I might have time tonight, but maybe not. Tom
