Test X.400 channel connection.
pmdf test -channel x400
Command Qualifiers Defaults
This utility is supplied only with the PMDF-X400 optional layered product.
x400The string parameter
pmdf test -channel x400utility can be used to test the configuration of the X400_LOCAL channel and verify that it can successfully connect to the remote MTA. Network configuration errors and validation problems will be reported by the utility.
Any file can be specified for transfer via the
-transferqualifier. However, if the file does not contain P1/P2/P22 information valid to the remote X.400 MTA, then the behavior is undefined. Some X.400 MTAs, such as PMDF-X400 and HP's Message Router X.400 Gateway, MRX, will accept any data and generate an error at a later stage in processing. Other MTAs, such as PP and EAN will abort the network connection as soon as they detect that the incoming data is invalid.
pmdf test -channel x400does not complete the connection successfully, it will indicate whether it is having trouble making the network connection itself or the network connection is rejected due to validation failure. If the former, make sure that the remote TSAP address is correctly specified for this MTA. If the latter, then check the MTA names and passwords. Remember that each MTA validates the name and password sent by the other MTA. Both sides of the connection must pass validation or the connection will be terminated with a validation failure error. Log or trace information on the remote MTA can prove invaluable when tracing validation failures or problems with messages being rejected.
Specifies the MTA to connect to when PMDF-X400 is configured for more than one remote MTA. This qualifier is only applicable when PMDF-X400 has been configured to support more than one remote MTA. The
mta-idvalue must be an MTA identification as defined in the X400-MTAID database. Note that in a single MTA configuration, as generated by the PMDF-X400 configuration utility, there is no MTA identification nor X400-MTAID database.
Use RTS to transfer the specified file, file-spec. If no file is given it will default to
nul(NT) and transfer 0 bytes of data. Note that transferring 0 bytes of data by specifying
-transferis not the same as transferring nothing, which is the behavior when this qualifier is not present.
