Ok, so through some finagling, twisting and turning I am now logged into my
new System i5!! Whoo hooo!  Special thanks to Alfredo Delgado for
introducing me to nmap as that is what allowed me to discover what IP
address the System i5 grabbed (and it wasn't the one I specified in the
wizard) and then I pointed OpsCons at that and I was in before I knew it
(note that this was after having to reset the QCONSOLE password on the
System i - very interesting process of clicking control panel buttons).
Now, I am trying to setup TCP/IP so I can get other sessions connected and
am having trouble.  I am reading the manual and it is telling me to use the
EZ-Setup Wizard which is currently bombing on me so I am going at it via the
"character based" approach.  Based on the below can anybody give input?
- I configured a line description successfully (i.e. ETHLIN01) and pointed
it at
- CHGTCPA to change the IP datagram forwarding to be *YES
- Added an interface like the following 192.168.0.27     255.255.255.0
ETHLIN01     *ELAN
- ENDTCP
- STRTCP
Joblog of QTCPIP shows the following: Status of *LIN ETHLIN01 is 'VARIED OFF'. Vary on completed for line ETHLIN01. Vary on completed for controller ETHLINET00.

You got to "vary on" your ethernet line:

lstep by step you type on the command line:
wrkcfgsts *lin (enter) = this shows a list of configured "lines" on your system, ETHLIN01 should be one of them. place your cursor before that ETHLIN01 entry which is obviously "varied off" and
type 1 (enter) = vary on this line
wait to come up, wait another second to come up, then
cfgtcp, option 1, (interfaces)
go to your interface 192.168.0.27 and do a 9 = start that interface
wait for that start up, then press F11 to see if it started up correctly (tcp has been already started)
then try to ping your machine from the rest of the LAN
When you set your line description ETHLIN01 to ONLINE at IPL = *YES, it comes up each time you do an IPL automatically, which is the default value. You had to do this manually only this
time, because you just created it.

Hope this helps,
Philipp
