We received message when trying to transfer from XCOM for Linux to XCOM on z/OS.
#XCOMU0298E Unable to allocate remote transaction program: Txpi 211: Socket connect error return value = 110
Release : 11.6, 12.0
Component : XCOM Data Transport for Linux PC
A Firewall was the cause of the problem in this case.
The Return Value = 110, ETIMEDOUT, indicates connection timed out.
If the Linux side is able to perform a loopback transfer successfully, then this indicates that the error is caused by either:
- Using the wrong IP address or the wrong port to address the partner.
- The partner XCOM is not responding
- No connectivity to the partner XCOM
- Firewalls prevent our connection request to reach the partner.
