Sterling Commerce ( bundles Connect:Direct (an automated synchronous file transfer software package) with the original version of SNA 4.0 Workstation. Users may have issues, which are addressed in SNA 4.0 Workstation Service Pack 1.

For example, a problem may occur when you use Implicit Incoming Remote LU in conjunction with Implicit Incoming Mode (these settings are defined under the Local Advanced and Remote Options LU Properties). The following Event ID 7 appears in the Application event log:

Event Source: SNA Server
Event ID: 7
APPC session activation failure: LU inactive
The SNA server (node) failed to activate an APPC session because the host has not sent an ACTLU request to the local dependent APPC LU. This error usually happens as the result of a mismatch between the host configuration and the SNA Server configuration.

Also, an SNA Server LU 6.2 Message trace may show that the SNA Server never responds to the "Open LU62 Request."
