If the network link terminates abnormally, a message box will indicate that a network error has occurred and that the session has been terminated. If you have more than one session active, Distinct IntelliTerm will display the name of the session that was terminated. The error window will stay active until you press escape (Esc). Abnormal termination may be due to problems with the network, or may occur because the remote host is no longer available. When this happens, you must reopen your sessions manually by selecting Open Session .... from the File menu.

If the session that was terminated was the only terminal window, then the Distinct IntelliTerm program will close.

If the terminal session is a 3270 or 5250, then a “PROG505” will appear in the Operator Information Area when the host system or host server is unavailable. Your session will be restarted automatically when the system comes back up. In this situation, the link to the gateway is still active and the gateway can request the host to restart a session.

To reopen a session to the same host, select Open Session .... from the File menu. The IP address for the host should appear in the dialog box. Press Connect to reconnect.
