Might be a silly question but is TCP/IP up and running.

STRTCP command to get it active if it isn't.

Another idea, do you have the HTTP licensed program installed?

bmas4002:

AFAIK, your 3025 errno translates to "No such path or directory." or "no such file or library".

First guess would be something in the HTTP configuration that's bogus. Second guess would be a missing V4R4 PTF that fixes some part of the IFS such as a subdirectory under perhaps /QIBM/ProdData/...

Less likely would be perhaps something like an old beta install of QShell that had a bunch of non-standard symbolic links that were never cleaned up.

With V4R4 -- way out of date; it won't be too long before we hear about V5R4 -- you might have difficulty getting this fixed.

We had this exact same message when working with the WebSphere Express Server.  The fix was in a path name being entered incorrectly.  It was something very minute like having the slash going the wrong direction or a misspelled directory.

Try having a collegue check the configuration...sometimes a second set of eyes can see something you might be looking over.  In my case, it was IBM support.

BTW, we are running V5R2.  If it is feasable and possible for you, I would recommend upgrading to one of the V5 versions of OS/400...a lot of work has been done since V4R4.  But, I understand that is sometimes not possible.

Good luck.

Yes, definitely have another pair of eyes verify directories/paths. That also reminds me that somewhere back in an earlier release,  HTTP configuration via the GUI/browser interface required actually going through and setting each item, even if it kept a default setting. Might've been fixed by PTF, but I remember a time where the resulting configuration file would have an abrupt end at whatever point you stopped making changes. This essentially cut the default settings out of the configuration.

You might have the second set of eyes be the one to touch each setting.
