Creating an outbound TNA device

I need to create an outbound TELNET device (TNAx:) with the CREATE_SESSION command. I was able to do this two months ago on a test basis, but I can't seem to get it to work now. Here's what I did:

1) Configure the DECserver 700 to talk IP.
a) local> change internet address
b) local> change internet gateway
2) Configure TELNET listener ports
a) local> change telnet listener 2001 port 1
b) local> change telnet listener 2001
connections enabled
3) Configure the terminal server port
a) change port 1 access remote
b) change port 1 default protocol telnet
4) Create the TELNET device
TELNET> create_session 1 8000/perm

I try to copy some text to the TNA8000 device, but the copy command just hangs and I have to do a CtlY to get out of it.

I've looked and looked, but I can't see what's different from two months ago.

Any ideas out there?


thanks!

Craig,

The telnet command in yours case should be:

TELNET> create_session 2001 8000/perm

In the change telnet listener 2001 port 1 command 2001 is the tcpip port and 1 is the server (physical) port.

Re: Creating an outbound TNA device

I fixed the CREATE_SESSION command, but it still doesn't work.

I did a $REPLY/ENABLE=NET, and got the following OPCOM message:

%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 3-MAR-2005 08:46:05.04 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user TCPIP TELNET on SIERRA
Session TNA8000: attempt to connect to 10.10.6.1:2001 failed; status 00000294

I looked in the usual help files, but can't find any reference to status 294. Does anybody know what this means?

thanks

Re: Creating an outbound TNA device

$ EXIT %x294

%SYSTEM-F-REJECT, connect to network object rejected

I think the remote DECserver is not listening on the port you have specified.

Re: Creating an outbound TNA device

I've set the TELNET listener port:

Listener TCP-port: 2001
Identification:
Ports: 1
Connections: Enabled

And then did the create_session command:

create_session 2001 8000 /perm

Is there anything else that I need to do?

Craig,

First check if the server accepts connections.
Attach a terminal or PC on the server port, then from another terminal try:

$ TELNET 2001

Type some characters and they must display on the terminal.

I tried TELNET 2001 and got the following:

%TELNET-I-TRYING, Trying ... 10.10.6.1
%TELNET-E-CONNFAIL, Failed to connect to remote host
-SYSTEM-F-REJECT, connect to network object rejected

Re: Creating an outbound TNA device

Craig,

This means that the server is not accepting connections. Maybe, you have already a connection?

Re: Creating an outbound TNA device

I deleted the sessions (delete_session) and got rid of the TNA devices, but I'm still getting the same messages:

%TELNET-I-TRYING, Trying ... 10.10.6.1
%TELNET-E-CONNFAIL, Failed to connect to remote host
-SYSTEM-F-REJECT, connect to network object rejected

Re: Creating an outbound TNA device

Craig,
When we get those messages, I have to log out the port on the decserver.
decserver>show sess all
decserver>show user
normally show the port as active.
