I suspect that is part of it. It was assigned a reservation in DHCP. I added a DNS entry and a reverse DNS entry for it. Flushed the cache on the DNS server and the i and now when I ping the FQDN it *does* return the correct internal IP. But still no response on the ping in either direction. FWIW 5250 also won't connect. As far as it knows, doesn't exist....

Still diggin'

Actually it sounds like a DNS issue. If my memory servers me, all devices are on the same subnet. You may not have an internal DNS entry. The other issue that I have seen is duplicate ip address. Linux based systems such as the Mac have a real problem yet windows appears to not care. The last thing to check is the subnet mask on the i and Mac
