They way I am lead to believe, is that the 205.XXX. number is a Phony number to 
our network.  (or what's on the wall, the DNS for the network.  The actual 
number that is used to connect to it is the number I supplied yesterday.   This 
is so that the "outside" world would not see it, or get to it unless they were 
dialed into our network.   If you did a telnet into the 10.60 number, I'm 
pretty sure that you wouldn't get the sign on screen. Of course, remember, all 
of this was set up prior to me having as much input into the 400 as I do now.   
 I'm not sure how the JetDirect Printer is showing up, but I will ask the 
Novell Tech when I see him.

Is it possible the IP numbers in your domain are not unique?  When I telnet
to the address you provided I get a JetDirect Printer.

I hope this comes thru so you can read it. this is a copy of the screen.

F3n4F24Yes, the name of the 400 is ISD43750. The 400 is not "seeable" on the

change the *remote to the actual number?

Management Central (MGTC) seems very touchy about TCP/IP configuration. It
apparently wants things to be exactly correct and isn't very forgiving when
common variations are used.
The single biggest item seems to be the relationship between the iSeries
host/domain setting and the entry for the system in the host table (or
possibly the appropriate DNS entry).
>From option 12 (Change TCP/IP domain information) of the CFGTCP menu, note
the fully qualified name of your system (e.g.,
Then check option 10 (Work with TCP/IP host table entries) and look at the
entry for your system's IP address.
The host table entry allows multiple host names to be associated with an IP
address. People often put in both as400host and as
alternative names. There's nothing exactly wrong with this, but it seems to
be a problem for MGTC and maybe one or two other server applications.
The problem seems to be that MGTC looks only at the first host name
specified for each IP address to see if it's the entry for the configured
qualified host name. It doesn't recognize any aliases. So make certain that is the first one for your IP address. If you also
want to use as400host, just make sure it comes second or later.
The entry would look similar to:
I'm not sure if TCP/IP _must_ be ended and restarted before MGTC will see
this change, but MGTC won't run without this setting. And note that all of
this is guesswork based on general experience from seeing what has worked in
the past; I can't point to any explicit documentation.
