    If you want to check if a specific Port is used by the XCOM server running on z/OS you can use a quick and easy command from the ISPF Command Shell:

    NETSTAT ALLCONN (PORT nnnn

     

    The output of the command is as follows if the specified Port is in use:

     

    MVS TCP/IP NETSTAT CS V2R3    
    User Id  Conn     State       
    -------  ----     -----       
    XCOM     0000004D Listen      
      Local Socket:   0.0.0.0..8044
      Foreign Socket: 0.0.0.0..0  
    ***

     

    Here we see that XCOM is listening on Port 8044 (by the way, that port is the default Port for XCOM).

    The output of the command is as follows if the specified Port is not in use at all:

     

    MVS TCP/IP NETSTAT CS V2R3
    User Id  Conn     State  
    -------  ----     -----
