Troubleshooting DECnet-Plus unreachable node?

» close window

The Question is:

We have 2 alpha servers (stand alone) ( RP & RK)and about a dozen vax consoles
 on a network.
From the RP alpha I can connect to any remote vax node using either decnet (set
 host..) or telnet. From RK alpha I can only use telnet to connect to the vax
When from RK I try to use $ set host nodename
or $ set host 2.2(decnet_addr)
errror reported is %SYSTEM-F-UNREACHABLE, remote node is not currently reachable.
Since both alphas are running the same ver v7.1 decnet phase V and the same
 apps, just pls advise what can I check on RP alpha to set the RK alpha
so that "set host.."works on RK alpha as well.
Thanks and best regards

The Answer is :

  Please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center, as details of the
  local DECnet-Plus configuration and the local network will be required.
