In the same vain as Chuck's question:

Is your PC subnet mask really

Are you using your AS/400's name or IP address when you try to get a
tn5250 session?

Your PC and your AS/400 look to be on 2 different networks (10.160.2.x
and 10.160.9.x).  Hopefully, your DNS server ( can resolve
the AS/400 name for you.

A suggestion:  Set the DNS lookup to *LOCAL and put the local DNS server
first in the list.  What this will do is have the 400 check it's host
table first for address resolution, then the local DNS and finally, the
remote (Public) DNS.
