The remote control units have  controller / device / mode .  Find the right
device  and vary it off/on.  You will come back up them.  We have a
controller called Perle with devices for each card caller RMTxx.  Each
device runs several mode jobs which talk to each physical device.  You then
the device descriptions for each remote physical device.  Find those APPC
devices and vary them off/on.

Hi Folks,

We are using TCP/IP to connect Perle 494e control units to our AS/400.

I have a site that dropped off last night and am having trouble getting
it back up. The WEIRD thing is that the control (which has 2 comm cards
in it) showed active this morning. I could ping the router (Cisco) fine
AND ping the cards in the Perle FINE...  But ALL of the devices were
vary on pending... I have had them shut the Perle unit off twice now and
tried varying the associated APPC DEVD's and the CTLD off and on with no
luck. NOW I cannot even get the CTLD to go active again. The APPC DEVD's
are "active" but missing the QRMTWSC entries.

I have had them shut the Perle off and leave it off to see if the AS/400
will see if it is DOWN. That was 10 minutes ago and so far nothing...
When I try pinging the Perle I get nothing so I am SURE it is off...

ANY idea what could be going on ?

HOW long does it take the AS/400 to REALIZE that this control unit is
OFF ?? !!

Thanks !
