Thank you, but...
The DRDA clue seemed to help but I'm not home yet.
The only host server not started is the IPX, which doesn't suprise me
since we have an NT network.

I have re-configured the client as stated and got the signon prompt,
(though I did get that before).
Now I receive the following error,
_____________________________
The connection test failed.

[IBM][CLI Driver] SQL30020N  Execution failed because of a Distributed
Protocol Error that will affect the successful execution of subsequent
commands and SQL statements:  Reason Code "1254".  SQLSTATE=58009
__________________________

Of course the help text does not define the "Reason Code". 

What else needs to be set up?

Thanks in advance
Wayne
