Subject: ACS System Debugger doesn't want to work


I have never used the ACS System Debugger before but saw it as a menu option
so naturally I was intrigued by a GUI debugger that could/would replace


* ACS v1.1.8.8 Build ID: 1380
* I am not an iSeries guy, but sometimes I am tasked with
writing/debugging Stored Procs/Triggers/Functions
* I run ACS as Administrator

I have a 'Run SQL Scripts' query window open.

I select the 'System Debugger' option from the 'Run' menu.

This brings up the Sign On window. I sign on.

System Debugger window is now displayed.

* Almost everything (toolbar options, menu options) on this UI is
disabled, excepts for the 'Start Debug' command

* Selecting 'Start Debug' does nothing

* In status pane at bottom of window, I have the following three

1. Attempting connection to <system name> (IP address)
2. Communications error with <system name>
3. Attempting to start debug server on <system name> .

I don't see anything of relevance in the joblog, that I can tell.

Is there something that must be configured on the i in order for this to

The 'Communications error with <system name>' in the lower pane is
confusing. Is the 3rd message in the pane a result of the 2nd message?

Communications seems fine as I can run queries, I can start and use 5250
emulation, I can peruse the system via iNavigator, etc.
