I was gifted an old AS/400 9404-600 V4M4R0. It has no console, no Twinax bricks, 1 ethernet lan connection. It WAS, repeat WAS, working via TN5250 emulation over LAN. But... I tinkered with the TCP/IP configs while attempting to get the M36 SSP S/36 to see the TN5250 as the console to the S/36. After tinkering and a subsequent IPL I no longer have access via LAN. NO ping, no activity lights on NIC. SO, I hosed the TCP/IP!... Without a console or LAN how can I get this box to listen to me???
