X.25 problems

X.25 problems

X.25 problems


we have a sco-unix server running version 5 of sco i belive with an ISA internal eicon S51 X.25 card installed and configured with eicon x.25 connect for unix, this has been running for a few years but not without problems, at least 4-5 times a week we have a comms failure 60-3 and when we ring up Remanco our epos terminal suppliers they say its a x.25 problem, I have gone through our configuration and from what I see there is no problem, however I am a bit concearned that our supplier does not let us have a copy of comms failure codes, I find quite hard to believe that a 60-3 is an x.25 problem is there an international comms failure codes available which will let me know.

any help will be appricated at a dead end  with this one I don't have to much x.25 knowledge.

Thanks in advance


RE: X.25 problems

When the communications fail, what status is the card in?  I'm not sure how the syntax reads on SCO, but within NT infrastructure, the command is "eccard status".  If it's in a "FAIL" status or "NOT LOADED" then I think you have a bad card.  Other than that, you might be getting some serious line noise coming across the network and freaking out the card.
