Charly, Check DSPHDWRSC *CMN to verify you have the correct resource name. For a 2617 you will see something like this where it's CMN03: Resource Type Status Text CMB01 918B Operational Combined function IOP LIN01 2612 Operational Comm Adapter CMN01 2612 Operational V.24 Port Enhanced LIN02 2612 Operational Comm Adapter CMN02 2612 Operational V.24 Port CC01 2617 Operational Combined function IOP LIN03 2617 Operational LAN Adapter CMN03 2617 Operational Ethernet Port LIN04 605A Operational Virtual Controller Try something like this: CRTLINETH LIND(ETHLINE) RSRCNAME(CMN03) ONLINE(*YES) ADPTADR(6600000000FF) ETHSTD(*ALL) TCPONLY(*NO) LINESPEED(10M) DUPLEX(*HALF) MAXFRAME(1496) SSAP((04 1496 *SNA) (06 1496 *NONSNA) (AA 1480 *NONSNA) (C8 1496 *HPR)) TEXT('Ethernet LAN - 10Mb/sec') LINKSPEED(10M) Comments: Assign your own Adapter address (> 020000000000) if you are doing anything that depends on that address (SNA CA 802.3 connection - like Netsoft router). If the card is ever replaced you won't end up with a different adapter address. If you may mix Tokenring and Ethernet, specifically getting into situations where you may have an issue with Most Significant Bit vs Least Significant Bit addressing, an adapter address that translates tthesame either way is useful. I often use 6600000000FF. If you don't need both Ethernet standards (no need for *IEEE8023), just use ETHSTD(*ETHV2). Will give you some performance improvement. Likewise, if only using TCPIP (no IPX, SNA or other protocols) specifying TCPONLY(*YES) will improve performance.

So far it hasn't been as much fun as I was looking forward to. A new ethernet controller in a new AS/400 Model 400 running V4R2. I create the line like this: CRTLINETH LIND(ETHLINE) RSRCNAME(CMN02) ADPTADR(*ADPT) EXCHID(*SYSGEN) I try to vary the line on and get message CPD27CD "line not varied on" with reason code 2006 which translates to "IOP type conflict" Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
