  • 1. Problem with printer
    Hi guys I have a problem with HP JetPrinter. The printer not answered. Device is powere on/active, printer session is active (on line and ready lights). In outq spool is ready, and thats all, I can't do it with spool anything. Still is ready and ready and ready. Release spool doesn't work, any message is not displayed (printer don't wait for user activity). But in Windows printer works excellent. So what is wrong?? And device is defined correctly, because earlier this printer works (printer is virtual). But now not. Second problem. Sometimes I can't call printer session. I mean I call it, printer panel is displayed for a moment (Only Ready is lights) and then session disconnected. It seems that ... well ... somebody ... call the same session name and session hang up?? But how to check it? How to check who open printer session? And how to "kill" this "dead" session?

  • 2. Loaded question - I miss the AS400 ...anyone looking for a pro in Lousiville, KY area?
    Hi all. I cut my teeth on AS400s and wish I could get back into a shop that uses them. Anyone in the Louisville area know of an opening for an admin/operations type specialist?
  • 3. User Rights
    Heyhey, I'm currently trying to give each division of our company their own rights on our AS400 system. This is what I've done: - I've made a group for each part of the company, in this group are the right defined. - I've put the right people in the right groups ( ofcourse ) But the problem is that they still have their own usrrights, and that the right defined in the group are ignored. Isn't it so that the system first looks at the group rights and when a user is not member of a group, that secondly he takes the user- rights? Because in my example he's ignores the rights of the group and goes directly to the user rights ... Thanks in advance, Dirk
  • 4. Read mail messages from pop3 mailbox
    Hi, is there someone who knows how you can receive mailmessages (with attachments) from a pop3 mailbox (exchange server) to your Iseries if possible, is it possible from within RPG(LE) We are getting emails with an XML-attachment and we need to process those XML-attachments automatically Thx Mike
  • 5. Export from os400 to win2k
    Hey everyone, I'm very new to the AS400, so this will look like a silly question... How can I export the results of a query, thus the database file, to an directory on our Win2K server? I believe it's possible to ftp the file to de right place, but how can I make it so that this will go automatic? Do I need to create a batch file? Is it also possible to convert the file to an .xls in the same movement? Then an second problem; this file must be exported every day, but the filename must be the date of creation. Hope I can find an answer here. Thanks in advance, Dirk

FTP from Unix to AS400 to EDI Server

Postby k_morland » Wed, 17 Dec 2003 02:01:19 GMT

I have been working on an FTP issue that is driving me nuts.  And of
course it is one that is out of the ordinary.

A client sends us a file to the ISeries that is in a Data Stream which
uses the IFS.  I then send it down to our EDI server where they are
supposed to edit it.  (I just work here).  They then send me the
results which I forward back to the client.  The problem is that when
I send it binary, it adds low values to the end of the file which both
Aetna and our EDI group can't handle.  If I send it ASCII then  I have
a limit of 32,766 bytes.  I've tried using the TRIM command with no

namefmt 1
put /qsys.lib/kwmlib.lib/testfile.file/testmbr.mbr testfile

This example gives me the low values are spaces at the end.  Any help
would be appreciated.

If the file starts in the IFS, then why do you bring it back into the
library file system?  Files in the library file system have fixed
lengths, and that is probably the source of your problem.

(BTW, a similar questions/answer was posted earlier).

Actually, I am not bringing it back into the library file system.  On
this command I am trying to FTP the file from the IFS on the AS400
down to our server.

This is the part that confuses me:

put /qsys.lib/kwmlib.lib/testfile.file/testmbr.mbr testfile

This is not a file in the IFS, this is a file in the 'traditional'
library file system.  It would have a fixed record length.

you could try issuing a
in FTP before PUTting the file (treats as stream instead of records)
might help (always trims tailing blanks from records)

Technically, You're NOT ftp'ing the file from the IFS...

The file /qsys.lib/kwmlib.lib/testfile.file/testmbr.mbr on your iSeries
system is the file named TESTFILE that has a member named TESTMBR in library
KWMLIB.  The long name is simply the way to access this file in the library
file system via the IFS file system.

As Scott pointed out, this file should have fixed length records.

You can view the raw data in TESTFILE from a green screen (5250 emulation
session) using the command:


Once you are viewing the data on the "Display Physical File Member" screen,
press F10, then F11.

This will show the data in the file on three lines:
1) The first line shows the data in character (text) representation
2) The next line shows the first hexadecimal character of the data in hex
3) The next line shows the second hexadecimal character of the data in hex

1.AS400 FTP to FTP Server Write problem

I have an FTP site on our W2K server (SP4) that I FTP files to from our
AS400. To do this I need write authority, which is OK, but users
accessing this site from a browser can upload/create anything on this
folder. Is there a way in Internet Information Services, or the folder
itself to stop users from writing to this folder yet still give me
rights to write to it? Permissions on the folder, or on IIS doesn't
seem to check the write privilages.
Anyone know how I can accomplish this?
