Session x (hostname:port) Socket Error 10051 (WSAENETUNREACH).


A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable socket.

This usually means TN3270 Plus cannot find a route to reach the remote host.

This error is normally caused by an incorrect IP address in the "Host Name" edit box in the "Connect to Host" dialog box.

Try pinging the host computer to see if it is responding. You can this from the Windows command prompt (Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt) by entering "ping hostname" or "ping IP address" on the command line. If Ping fails, talk your network administrator and get the correct IP address.

TN3270 Plus is continually being improved. To learn more about the latest enhancements, please review our Version History web page.
