You may receive the following error message:


DC396003 Vn Tnnn Socket error, function = RECV, errno = 1121, reason = 76650446


The socket  errno and reason codes in this message are documented in the z/os manual  UNIX System Services Messages and Codes.

The error codes can also be found in SYS1.MACLIB in member  BPXYERNO.
