Dialup Win95-->AS400 via SNA Server problem

Dialup Win95-->AS400 via SNA Server problem

Post by John Dobso » Wed, 23 Jul 1997 04:00:00



I have several dialup users I am trying to start 5250 emulation sessions on
an AS/400 using CA/400 v3r1m2 through SNA server.  They are using Win95
dialup networking.  On the first connect after install, everything comes up
great.  If they try to connect after that, they get a message "SNA sponsor
connection failed.  Do you want to run SNA setup. . .".  Sometimes a reboot
helps, sometimes not.  They establish a connection to the NT network fine
and the SNA log shows that they connect normally, but CA/400 doesn't seem
to see the connection.

I have 30 local users using SNA Server and CA/400 with no problem.  I also
have no problem dialing up with CA/400 on Win NT Workstation or using Rumba
on any OS.  Any ideas?  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi John,

Just use native TCP/IP... there's no need for an extra step (SNA).  I
almost connect daily with RAS and Client Access and it works fine.

Regards,
Paul

PMFJI, but..

If you have an NT Server already, configure it for RAS and DHCP.  Configure
the remote clients (95 or NTWS4) with dial-up networking using TCP/IP.  
Install CAW95/NT (V3R1M2) on the clients.  Configure the server to allow
access to the entire network.

Works great!

I had similar troubles in a NetSoft --> SNA Server dial up setup...

The solution for me was simple...

Instead of specifying an NT Domain to look for the SNA Server, SPECIFY the
SNA Server's name....

On dialup connections, this solved 95% of my connection problems....

Hope this helps,
Dave
