Environment

I/A Series R2 UNC-520

I/A Series R2 WorkPlace Pro,  error reported in build r2.301.529

Cause

The WorkPlace Pro cannot connect to the UNC-520 at the given IP address. 

The error message stems from a bug in the Sun java, "The Socket constructor does not give an Exception on an unknown IP address. It just hangs."
 http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4232651

Resolution

Verify that the UNC is capable of communicating at the IP address specified. For example, if the UNC is rebooting constantly, it will not be able to communicate.
