The AS/400 robot was showing up in IM but getting communication errors when trying to access any of the probe GUIs.

Environment:
AS/400 (iSeries) robotUIM 7.x - 8.x

There are some additional special entries that need to be added into the robot.cfg and host files of the AS/400 (iSeries) robot.

<controller> 

domain = <domain name>

hub = <hub name>

hubrobotname = <hub robot name>

hubip = <hub IP>

robotname = <robot name>

robotip = <robot IP>

strict_ip_binding=no 

local_ip_validation=no 

<remote> 

contip = <robot ip>

</remote> 

</controller> 

 

2. Peform the following to edit the hosts file:

 

* Navigate to the hosts file through the CFGTCP command and select option 10. 

* Add entries for the AS/400 robot ip address and the hub robot ip address.
