    Wavelink Naurtech CETerm 5.7

    Environment:

    CE Term 5.7


    Issue:

    Using CE Term 5.7 I get the error message "Waiting for Network"

     

    Cause:

    The customer sees this message because they have enabled "Check Network Before Connect" in CETerm. CETerm checks the full path to the host with a ping.

    There can be several possible causes for this not being returned:

    • The hostname may be incorrect in the CETerm session.
    • The DNS may be incorrectly configured on the device.
    • The host may not be reachable on the network.
    • The host may not be responding.
    • The host or network may be configured to prevent ping responses.


    Resolution:

    • Correct any of the above issues
    • Disable the "Check Network Before Connect" in CE Term
