After spending two weeks with HP  tech support it came out that there is an
undocumented bug in the SICL libraries that requires the E2050A to have a
symbolic name.  This name must be listed in your DNS server on your network
or you can list it locally in the   "HOSTS" file on your host PC as Greg
Goebel describes.  My particular problem  stemmed from an improperly
configured access list on the E2050. (as you can TELNET to the box, this is
not your problem).  Once properly configured, the E2050 should work fine
over your network.

Probable Fix, add the following line to your hosts file   E2050A
