I have two ideas:

1)  OS/400 did not support device naming until V4R3.  If you are using
       a V3R2 - V4R2 version of OS/400, you need to apply PTFs to 
       make your system do device naming under TELNET.

       Go to http://as400service.ibm.com/  and search for "II10918" 
       for more info on how to enable device naming support in OS/400.

2)  You may be using an old version of tn5250.   The new versions of
       tn5250 would specify things like this: 
          xt5250 env.DEVNAME=BOB01

       Type "tn5250" (by itself) at a shell prompt to see what the
       common options are for the version you're running.  If you're
       running an older version, you might solve your problem by
       upgrading.   If you're running a newer version, perhaps 
       you're specifying "-s" where xt5250 wants "env.DEVNAME"?
