Hello ...

I'm trying to get WebSM working so I can remotely attach to the HMC managing 
our i5/550. This HMC's IP address is

The Firewall application on the HMC has been configured to allow WebSM 
connections at ports 9090 9940 and 30000:30009

IBM SupportLine has told me the connection to the HMC can be verified using the 
CWBPING command.

When I enter the following commands from my PC:

CWBPING /port:9090

CWBPING /port:9940

I get a "Connection verified to system"  ... This is good.

However, when I try any of the 30000-30009 ports I get an error messages:

E - CWBCO1003 - Sockets error, function connect() returned 10061
E - CWBCO1049 - The iSeries server application (User defined) is not started
E - CWBCO1008 - Unable to connect to server application #30000, returned 10061

E - CWBCO1016 - Connection verify to system failed

IBM is telling me that something in our network is restricting access to these 

Our network and PC guys are emphatically stating that "we do not filter ports" 

They say that the HMC is rejecting requests to ports 30000-30009 ....

Has anyone on the list experienced this issue? If so what have you done to 
resolve it?

I've got a classic example of finger pointing going on here ... IBM says it is 
our network and our network support guys are saying it is IBM .... I'm caught 
in the middle.
