IN DESPERATE NEED OF IDEAS!!!
We currently employ 4 Digi PortServer II devices to support a number of Wyse terminals. We have recently expanded the number of terminals we use and this has caused the following problem. 3 Terminals at random froze mid session and couldn’t be made to work, yet they were connected to the mainframe i.e. a login prompt did eventually appear. Finally by repatching ports in the PortServer II hardware these 3 terminals starting working only to find that another 3 elsewhere had now failed.
It’s almost as if there is some setting or threshold that is dictating how many terminals can be in use at once.
The mainframe is a HP-UX ver 11.0. The cat5 cabling is 100% fine and the Wyse terminals are configured correctly and are all known to work i.e. disconnect a working terminal and plug that one in and it works.
I hope someone has a few suggestions as i’m without a clue as to how to proceed.
