Sean !

Just had something happen that I thought you'd be interested in. We have had 
this
same thing happen fairly frequently ever since we moved to Frame Relay and
TCP/IP. Make sure system value QAUTOCFG (Autoconfigure devices) is set to on (1)
- if you normally have this set to 0 (off). Then pick one of the devices that is
Vary on pending and do a RTVCFGSRC into a CL and compile it (that way you don't
loose any settings) and then delete the device. Then have someone on the remote
end turn that device OFF for about 30 seconds and then turn it back on. Check
QSYSOPR for "Automatic configuration created device description xxxxxxxxxx"
(CPC2630) If if DID recreate this device, it has cleared "something" in the
AS/400. Delete it and run your CLP to recreate the device. Vary it on and you
should be set...

Also, I have tried to reply directly to you at the address you post with and it
kicks back as no good (?) was trying to get to you directly for speeds sake...
What's up with that ?
