KB#00867-Error=17 occurs if the IP Address is used instead of hostname with TCP Client

Title:

Error=17 occurs if the IP Address is used instead of hostname with TCP Client

Description:

KB article 00783 has examples of how to use TCP and UDP Sockets. The last code snippet for the TCP/IP Client example has this line: 

0010 OPEN (1,MODE="host=192.168.1.33,port=12000")"N0" 
... 
... 
... 

An Error=17, TCB(10)=18 can occur on this line and is resolved by using the hostname instead of IP Address in the mode portion of the statement. 

Resolution:

An Error=17, TCB(10)=18 can occur on this line and is resolved by using the hostname instead of IP Address in the mode portion of the statement.
