Connect remotely to AS400 via Client Access
Posted on 2004-09-24
I am running Client Access in V4R3 iseries shop. Have no trouble accessing inside. I am trying to connect via Client Access outside the office. I am putting in the public IP address with port 23. The router has the public IP mapped to the internal AS400 ip address. When CA tries to connect I get message:
The AS/400 system was contacted, but refused the connection request.
Make sure the host servers have been started on the AS/400 system; see How to Start AS/400 Host Socket Servers.
If a TCP/IP router, firewall or gateway of some kind exists on the network between the PC and the AS/400 system, make sure the router is configured to allow connections to the Client Access Express host servers and to the Server Mapper on the AS/400 system. If message CWBCO1022 was logged as well, this message indicates the port number that must be allowed through the router to perform the Client Access Express function being attempted.
I have verified that everything appears to be started, but I can not get connected. If I try to telnet into the AS400 I get "Could not open connection tio the host , on port 23: Connect failed"
Any idea on what is happening?
