RUNRMTCMD
We are moving our current AS400 to a data center in Chicago we had tested our RUNRMTCMD and they worked fine than they moved us to the DMZ and now they don't work we have opened ports 9475 & 8475 and still doesn't work. What do you think is the problem could it be an SSL issue on the AS/400 in Chicago? We don't get an error the job just hangs and we have to cancel it.

    What "job" hangs? What operation are you running? You mentioned RUNRMTCMD, but you didn't say anything about what the destinations are? Is SSL an intended element for the communication?

    The destination is a batch file on a PC not in the DMZ.  Doesn't work with SSL.  We know it has something to do with moving AS400 to the DMZ we just don't know what.

    Network or Firewall issues. My guess. Are routes set correctly?

    We don't know about the routes we had them open ports 9475 & 8475 are we missing a port. Does something on the AS/400 need to be turned on to use SSL? We are working with a group that neither of us really know what we need or what to ask for.

    Can you ping the IP address of the remote system to see if it's connected to the network? If you can ping it, try to do an FTP command from a command line entry screen to see if the login is still valid. I have a feeling there is a connection and/or authority issue. Report back with any further info.

    The unfortunate thing is they are rebuilding the AS400 at this time and I have not access to it.  Will try when I can and let you know.  Thanks for the suggestion.

    Is the PC listening on those ports for rexec() requests? If the PC isn't listening for SSL rexec() requests, any route firewall won't matter. Does the PC react to the request? Send a command to create some object on the PC and check to see if it worked. The problem might be in the return route. Is there a PC firewall involved?

    Yes the PC is listening we think we found the problem port 512 needs to be opened.  They are rebuilding the AS400 tonight so we will try the RUNRMTCMD once they give us access. Thanks for your suggestions I will let you know tomorrow if we had success.

    If the PC is listening on 512, what was the purpose of opening 9475 & 8475 in the firewall? It would be port 512 that needed to be opened.

    Have you checked with the Chicago data center to make sure nothing else has changed that you are unaware of?
