Dumb question time since the smart questions have been answered :D

On the 5250 emulation in the configuration for the session are either of
the check boxes selected for "Avoid duplicate names on this workstation"
or "Avoid duplicate names with other workstations"? If so that's your
problem, instead of the name you assigned the system would be trying to
auto-create a device using the name you assigned with a suffix of "A", "1"
(or some other such animal) and can't because you have auto-create turned
off...

Have you checked to make sure that there isn't a currently active
session with the ID of the session you're trying to connect with?
Perhaps the user didn't signoff before closing the session.

Also, I assume you checked that the session ID being used it still
what you expect.

Either case would prevent just the emulator from connecting....though
I think you should have seen a different error than the one you
originally mentioned.

Re-installing is an option. Still waiting for the network guy to see

he can do, if anything. I'll check the SP level.

An additional note: Until a couple of weeks ago all of our remote
connections were connecting through system-generated session ids. I
re-configured (and tested!) all sessions (local and remote) to have
specific
ids. I set the QAUTOCFG value to '0' (Off) and QAUTOVRT to '0' (zilch).
I
re-tested all remote sessions after that; they all worked.

You said data transfer works. Do other aspects of Client/iSeries Access
like iNav work, i.e. everything but PC5250?

Have you considered uninstalling/reinstalling iSeries Access and making
sure
the latest SP is installed?

I have verified the connection from the client using the cwbping
utility.
Everything, including Telnet, verifies. I have connected to our
system from the client using Telnet from within the DOS command
window; I get a signon panel.

They can run the Data Transfer process. The only difference
(port-wise) is that it uses the database port (8471) rather than the
telnet port (23).

I re-booted the PC; still no love.

I asked the network guy to check out the firewall and anything else he
could think of. He'll get around to it when he can - whatever that
means.

Have you run a NETSTAT *CNN to see if the remote site is connecting?
If you see the telnet connection but they never get a sign on screen,
it is on the client side or the network in between. If the telnet
connections never hits, then it is one of the other servers that they
are not reaching. Have you verified your connection settings as far
as when to look up the IP address and/or port?

Kirk,

I think something was lost in either the thread or in my thoughts.
The user cannot signon at the remote site because they cannot get the
PC5250 session to connect to our system. I.e., no signon panel. So,
unless I'm losing it (another distinct possibility), the job
description is not germane.
