Check your termination on the twinax line.  How many devices on the
controller?  Do you have duplicate addresses in use?  I would start by
disconnecting all the terminals in the chain and testing the twinax back to
the controller with a port tester.  Then add one cable at a time to the
chain testing with the port tester.

1.) most likely bad termination.
2.) most likely to devices with same address
3.) most likely terminal emulation and device description not matching.

Subject: Problem with AS/400 Devices




Has anyone experienced this?

1.)  There is a 3486 Dumb Terminal that fails, cursor is on the upper left
of the screen and the status of these devices on the AS/400 is "failed" .
Do we have to change the emulation type that these terminals are emulating.

2.)   There is this Dumb Terminal that return to sign on screen even though
they are using these devices. And there are dumb terminals that return to
sign on screen even though this terminals are idle, terminal screen are on
users menu.

     Note: This is a terminal that had dual session and only one session
     return to sign on screen.

3.   Once users are using this device, there are times that the character
they are encoding/typing is not displayed. But when they check it, number 0
sometimes replaces the character.
