To configure an iSeries machine for TCP/IP:

  1. Create an ethernet line description to identify the hardware resource name for the ethernet card:

    1. Go to the hardware menu:

      GO HARDWARE

    2. Choose 1. Work with communication resources.

    3. Create the ethernet line description, where CMN03 is your iSeries resource name:

      CRTLINETH LIND(ETHLINE) RSRCNAME(CMN03) ONLINE(*YES) +
      VRYWAIT(*NOWAIT) MAXCTL(40) ADPTADR(420000000000) +
      EXCHID(05655555) ETHSTD(*ALL) LINESPEED(10M) +
      DUPLEX(*HALF) +
      SSAP((04 1496 *SNA)(12 1496 *NONSNA)(AA 1496 *NONSNA) +
      (C81496 *HPR)) THRESHOLD(*OFF) LINKSPEED(10M) COSTCNN(0) +
      COSTBYTE(0) SECURITY(*NONSECURE) PRPDLY(*LAN) +
      USRDFN1(128) USRDFN2(128) USRDFN3(128) AUTOCRTCTL(*YES) +
      AUTODLTCTL(1440) CMNRCYLMT(2 5) TEXT('Ethernet Port')

  2. View all TCP/IP related commands:

    GO CMDTCP

  3. Go to the Configure TCP/IP menu:

    CFGTCP

  4. Choose 1. Work with TCP/IP interfaces:

    1. Type 1 to add a TCP/IP IP address and connect it to the ethernet card.

    2. Enter information similar to the following and press Enter:

      • Internet address: '155.1.1.100'
      • Line description: ETHLINE
      • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
      • Type of service: *NORMAL
      • Maximum transmission unit: *LIND
      • Autostart: *YES
      • PVC logical channel identifier:
        • X.25 idle circuit timeout: 60
        • X.25 maximum virtual circuits: 64
        • X.25 DDN interface: *NO
        • TRLAN bit sequencing: *MSB
    3. Press F3 to return to the Configure TCP/IP menu.

  5. Choose 10. Work with Host Table Entries:

    1. Type 1 to add a TCP/IP host table entry address and connect it to the iSeries IP address.

    2. Enter information similar to the following and press Enter:

      • Internet address: '155.1.1.100'
      • Host names:
        • Name: S1012477
        • Text 'description': Host Name for RJS AS/400 System
    3. Press F3 to return to the Configure TCP/IP menu.

  6. Choose 12. Change local domain and host names:

    1. Enter information similar to the following and press Enter:

      • Local domain name: RJSSOFT.NET
      • Local host name: S1012477

        TCP/IP is configured.

  7. Start TCP/IP support:

    STRTCP STRSVR(*YES)
