Based on this response, I'd say the most likely problem is that it's not finding an AS4 entry in your configuration file (or as others have suggested, it's not finding the configuration file altogether)

To prove (or disprove) this theory, try this:

tn5250 ssl:XXX.XX.XXX.XX

Does that work?

'connection timed out' means that TN5250 sent a request to connect to
your server (the one at XXX.XX.XXX.XX) and did not receive a response to
that connection request, so it eventually timed out.

Most likely, a firewall or similar device is blocking access to yout

What happens if you type:

telnet XXX.XX.XXX.XX 992

I know the 'telnet' command wont work because it doesn't support SSL,
but does it connect to port 992? Or do you get a time-out error?

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 . I tried installing tn5250 for connecting to a
AS/400 Server but it just don't connect. The error is

rhishabh@rhishabh1:~$ sudo tn5250 AS4
[sudo] password for rhishabh:
Could not start session: Connection timed out

I have created the configuration in ~/.tn5250rc as

AS4 { host = ssl:XXX.XX.XXX.XX
trace = log.txt
ssl_ca_file = /home/rhishabh/Certificate/AS4.cer }

I configured the tn5250 using --with ssl option to enable ssl support.
Though during configuration it generated errors for ncurses library and
OpenSSL header files/lib. This i got resolved by d/l the latest pkg and
other form Synaptic manager. After which configuration& make install
without any error.

Now i am stuck at this error. Log file only contains

tn5250_ssl_stream_init() entered.
SSL Method = SSLv23_client_method()

I need help in diagnosing this timeout error as where to start.
