Defining the printer to the host: TCP/IP attachment
NOTE: If your installation specified a longer interval on the
ARPAGE configuration statement in the TCP/IP profile, you
may need to wait longer than five minutes. (For information
about the ARPAGE statement, refer to the IBM TCP/IP MVS
Customization and Administration Guide.)
3. Enter the ping command again at the MVS system.
If you receive a successful response to the ping command
this time, it means there is a duplicate IP address. Consult
your network administrator.
If the ping is unsuccessful:
Table F-10. Example of an unsuccessful ping – MVS
EZA0458I Ping V3R1: Pinging host 220.127.116.11
(Use ATTN to interrupt)
EZA 0464I PING: Ping #1 timed out
If your ping is not successful, verify the following:
The printer is powered on.
The cables are properly connected between the printer and
The Network Interface Card (NIC) in the printer is functioning
properly. (Consult your Xerox service representative.)
There is proper connectivity to the Multi-station Access Unit
(MAU), if one is being used.
The IP address used to define the printer in PSF is unique in
the TCP/IP network.
The IP address of the MVS system is unique. If not, consult
your network administrator to resolve the address problem.
The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) size of the IP packet
for the MVS system is equal to the MTU size of the printer.
(For information about the values recommended for the MVS
system, see the "GATEWAY" statement in table B-8.)
– To change the MTU size for the MVS system, change the
GATEWAY statement in the MVS TCP/IP profile, and
restart TCP/IP to activate the changes.
– If you are running RouteD, the maximum MTU size is the
one specified on the BSDROUTINGPARMS statement
