CFGTCP option 20 will get you to a lot of the individual server configuration commands that include the autostart parameter.

Also, we had a related problem after upgrading to 7.1 from 5.4 and found an autostart job in a subsystem that was starting TCP/IP. We had long ago removed STRTCP from QSTRUP but missed the other one on one system.

Somewhere in iNav (Network...Servers...?) you can set each of the TCP servers to start when TCP is started. There may be another way (aside from QSTRUP, I mean), but I haven't come across it. Anyway, this is how I get the TCP servers to start. TCP is started via the value set by the CHGIPLA command.

The default for STRTCP is to start interfaces and servers so configured.

Start application servers . . . *YES
Start TCP/IP interfaces . . . . *YES
Start point-to-point profiles . *YES
Start IPv6 . . . . . . . . . . . *YES

You may desire the additional control you get by starting TCP/IP in QSTRUP.

Jerry Draper,
Thanks for your cautionary note.
I removed STRTCP from my QSTRUP program some time ago because my
CHGIPLA is configured to start TCP/IP.

I currently perform these commands in QSTRUP cl.

STRTCPSVR SERVER(*NTP) to connect to time server

review my QSTRUP program job log for possible problems.
IBM pointed us to six PTFs related to this issue that are NOT in any
