Well then, I can recreate your error! Internally FrankieV is at
172.29.2.40 or V7R1Prod.Frankeni.com. If I access
http://172.29.2.40:2001 I get a log in but EVERY functions yeilds the
red(ish) box with TCTUI1003E. If I use http://v7r1prod.frankeni.com:2001
then that works perfectly.
Here's the thing, MANY of the functions we use daily work Okey Dokey
when we use the IP address to access the server. IBM Navigator for i is
NOT one of those things!
So mostly you have it right, what you've not got correct is how you're
ACCESSING the system. If you think about apache and how it directs
inbound requests to the various servers you can have MANY virtual hosts
on the same server. Even Frankie (a lowly 170 on V5R3) runs
www.frankeni.com www.idevcloud.com www.iinthecloud.com www.midrange.com
and others. In order for apache to know which virtual host to ring up it
looks at the inbound URL. The IP address, however, is not a URL.
So try this as a simple solution. In your own local hosts file add the
10.0.10.205 address with the FQDN of VASi5.valadd.com then in your
browser use http://VASi5.valadd.com:2001 and I think you will have a
'Kazaa' moment. :-)
The correct solution of course is to put that in your local DNS so
that you don't need to mess with host table entries on the machines that
access the server.

I was going to post about my woes in getting it set up on my LPAR's as
well so lemme ask a couple of questions....
When you say that the FQDN and IP match up, are you saying that the Work
with TCP/IP Host Table entries must match (Option 10 on CFGTCP?). Match
*what* exactly? And when you say test if from the IBM i partition, are
you saying that it should be pingable or?
The IP address for the IBM i on my LPAR is 10.0.10.205 (at least, one of
the IP addresses assigned to the line description is). I have that IP
assigned to VASi5.valadd.com in the host table entries. When I access
Navigator from my browser on the local network I type in
10.0.10.205:2001 and I get a very nice looking log in prompt and then
see the menu. Basically every option on the menu returns TCTUI1003E
just like Buzz.
I DO get a security warning from Chrome that the certificate isn't
trusted when I access the page originally but that is about all I see.
I *just* put on the latest groups and CUME. Regardless of how and when
I start the *ADMIN server, I always see this error. I always have but
it hasn't been a big deal since I use 5250j and IBM i Access when I have
to. But it would be nice to have this working......Web Admin and DCM
work fine. I just have never gotten Navigator to work.

Be very positive in no uncertain terms that the IP address used to
access the server and the FQDN for the server match up. Also make sure
that the rDNS record matches that IP address. Be sure to test this FROM
the IBM i partition. If these do not match many things (IBM Navigator
for i INCLUDED) will not work correctly.
Second be sure you have all the correct Java components installed and
have current PTF groups for HTTP, JAVA, TCP and that the HIPER group is
reasonably current as well.
Also if a lot of things start when your system starts and you don't have
very many disk arms. Try ending and restarting the *ADMIN server when
the system isn't very busy. I have seen that on systems with few arms
where everything starts at once that the *ADMIN server doesn't finish
starting correctly and this is one of the issues that surfaces.

I make use of IBM Navigator For i (mainly in lieu of -not- being able to use
Ops Nav in iAccess For Windows on my Win 8 laptop). A week ago we ported
over from a Model 520 to an 8202 (both @ v7r1). I now find almost all the
selections are generating server communication errors, namely TCTUI1003E.
Google has not been my friend, so far. Has anyone run into this problem?
