    Does anyone know where I can find information on the TCP Ports required for HPPJL communication to remote print servers. Specifically, we are trying to ascertain these ports as it appears the local firewall is hiding one remote print server (the internal LAN equivalents work fine). The intranet people have the Telnet ports opened but are unsure if others are required. Thanks in advance, Ron
  • 3. problems setting up printer as device on AS400
    I am learning the as400 currently, so please have patience with me here. I have a user who has a LaserJet 6L connected to her PC via parallel connection. She has Client\Access Express installed on her PC for connection to the as400. She has as400 reports that currently go out to a networked printer\copier and wants these reports to print out on the laserjet 6L connected to her PC. I setup a session for her printer on her PC and took all the default values. I then hasdone of our AS400 programmers set her reports to go to the LaserJet 6L. Now when she prints the reports we do get a print out, but its weird. Lines, crossed lines and what appears to be drawings of intersections. Not aski characters or anything I have seen before. what should I be looking at to fix this problem? gary

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.
