  • 4. Problem with RUNRMTCMD to Internet Explorer using ISA server
    We have been using the RUNRMTCMD to open Google maps in a browser on client PCs, and it worked well until a few months ago. (We're using the MS Firewall Client for ISA Server 2004 to browse the internet). We can run the same command directly from our PC's to bring up Google maps, but when it is run via RUNRMTCMD, our network engineer says that the authentication is not being passed to ISA server. The iSeries and ISA server are on the same subnet, and there is no problem for users on that same subnet. However, anyone outside of the subnet has this problem. It is ONLY a problem with RUNRMTCMD and multiple subnets. We can get a 3rd party product (Turbo Gorilla) to work on multiple subnets. Technical environment: iSeries V5R3, iSeries Access for Windows V5R3, Windows XP SP2 Does anyone have any ideas for further troubleshooting? Thank you! Sara

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
effects.

Ex:
bin
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).

Scott,
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
STRUCT F
in FTP before PUTting the file (treats as stream instead of records)
also
SITE TRIM 2
or
QUOT SITE TRIM 2
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:

DSPPFM FILE(KWMLIB/TESTFILE) MBR(TESTMBR)

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
form
3) The next line shows the second hexadecimal character of the data in hex
form

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?
Thanks.
