NS Configuration (HP3000/918)

I have connect a HP3000 to a PC with a card LAN. The PC is in a workgroup (IP Address definite), the HP is configured (NS configuration).
The problem is that the command : NETCONTROL START;NET=nameLAN, doesn't work = err 42.
Is it because of the path physical LANIC that I defined myself : 56/56.10 ?
There is no conflit with DTC validation !

How many lan cards has the HP3000?. If one you have to configure the same LINK to NS and DTS.

If 2 lan cards, you have to configure the new one with the newlanic and assign it to the NS configuration.

Otherwise, as I remember, 918 machine has lanic 56/56 as default.

Thank you for your precious help.
I have make all that:
- I have a Hp3000/918.
- I have changed the physical path of the LANIC from 56/56.10 to 56/56.
- The name of the LANIC is the same to NS and DTS = DTSLINK.
- I have validated the NETXPORT in the NMMGR.
- I have started the network with:

But, it is always the same problem.
Is it because I used a coaxial cable? Will a special cable be necessary for the connection?

Hi Djamila,

Can you attach a file with a screen copy of the error?.
