Lan cnfg
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??? This is a museum project. Not a production project. Ray

    I would invest in a console. And I can't think of an alternative.

    I've picked up a couple console terminals at PC/electronic recycle warehouses before. Relatively cheap.

    For a box this old, a working console is practically a requirement.

    Thanks for the info.

    Had not considered the recycle depots as a source.  This box originally used the 8 port Twinax bricks.  I see they are available.  Then  a piece of twinax cable.

    I have the modem for this box.  Can I use that in conjunction with a HyperTerminal to gain some access into this box?

    I agree with TheRealRaven.  Your best chance is getting the hardware required to setup one twinax terminal.  Port zero on the first twinax brick is reserved for the system console.

    You can get replacement workstation consoles on line from a few sites. likethese but they offer the set up with LCM monitors for the most part. If this is for a museum like you said are you looking to get the big old clunky ones for realism?
