Event source TN3270E, Event ID 56, Event Type - Error, Unknown TCP error =6.

Hi all,

We frequently experience the following EM when connection to an application on our Server:

Event source TN3270E, Event ID  56, Event Type - Error, Unknown TCP error =6.

Can anybody tell me what the EM exactly means?

thanks

Sorry, none of above really helped me.
In addition:
We are using a Terminal Emulation call Web to Host from Netmanage which is installed on an Apache WebServer who connects to a Mainframe over a leased line. They use the emulation through their Internet Explorer.
About 400 users are using the emulation software and since 2 weeks 1 to 10 user are receiving this error message. Usually rebooting solves the problem. Protokol is TCP/IP.

Three possibilities that I can think of.. Timeout settings, Maximum Sessions Reached, Out of resources. Time out settings would probably be on the connection(ODBC?).Maximum Sessions Settings would be on the Apache. The server that Apache is on may be maxing out on the resources. On Netmanages web site they mention that when the resources get maxed it starts dropping connections.

Hope some of this at least gives you some ideas.
