I did this and finally got a failure.  The FTP log has this:

250 Command SBMJOB CMD(SPS800) JOB(SPS800) JOBQ(QCTL) successful.

221 QUIT subcommand received.

Note the "504 Privileged port not allowed on PORT subcommand."  Is this
something that entering passive mode at the PC would fix?  Is that a
SENDPASV command?  This problem only started when I loaded V5R1.

Thanks.
