#XCOMU0298E Unable to allocate remote transaction program:  Txpi  238: getaddrinfo error return value = 1   

when execute a receive file transfer by using command:xcomtcp -c4 -f(configfilename)?

Answer:

In reference to message

#XCOMU0298E Unable to allocate remote transaction program: Txpi  238: getaddrinfo error return value = 1

The message indicates that CA XCOM DATA TRANSPORT could not resolve the IP name or address.   

So, you need to make sure that you have the correct value for REMOTE_SYSTEM=.

Now you need to keep in mind that CA XCOM DATA TRANSPORT also have a REMOTE_SYSTEM_RF=, REMOTE_SYSTEM_SJ= and REMOTE_SYSTEM_SR=.

Each of the parameters is for the different type of transfers and you must use them accordingly with those type of transfers.  

Therefore please have a look at the list of parameters at link

Please make sure that you have specified REMOTE_SYSTEM_RF= in the xcom configfile when you perform a RECEIVE FILE transfer.
