I posted 17 easy steps for debugging with SEPs on these lists - it's
actually a lot easier than that sounds - this is the green side of things.

The RDP debugger is very cool - or you can use the very similar graphical
debugger that is part of the Java Toolkit.

Here's the URL for those instructions -

http://archive.midrange.com/web400/201011/msg00282.html

I worked this up because I'm often on a customer's machine, and neither RDP
nor the graphical debugger are an option.

A caveat - if you do this on a production machine, for a program or service
program that many people are using, you may end up getting lots of messages
about the breakpoint occurring - and those users are blocked until you press
enter when the message is displayed.

Or if someone wanted to give me some instructions on how to do that, I
would really appreciate it.

You try debugging with a "service entry point" yet?

Logging is in place.

My home-grown FTP exit program(s) record who logged in, from where,
when, and the commands done. I have a db setup wherein I've defined
each FTP user, where they can log in from, the acceptable FTP commands
(MD, CD, GET, PUT, etc) , and their library (or IFS folder, if that's
what they need), and a list of SYS commands that they issue (if we
need to restrict them to that level). If they try to issue an invalid
command, a log entry is noted.
Shoot, everything is logged; as soon as the FTP exit program is
activated (right after the first '/free' statement), the very first
thing that is done is a log entry is made, before any checking is done
("FTP EXIT Program
running')

Logins are handled just fin, library/folder restrictions are being
handled no problem, SYS restrictions work. GETs are working and are
recorded, PUTs are working and are recorded. But the GET/PUT failures
aren't being logged; the 'FTP EXIT Program running' entry isn't even
being recorded (indicating that the exit program isn't even being
called - right?). I've got to be missing something, but I don't know
what.

So... I figured my home-grown stuff is fouling up somewhere. To prove
that, I downloaded, installed and set up SECTCP from Easy400.net.
It's *DOING THE SAME THING*. Successes are recorded, failures are
not.

Am I missing something somewhere?

So is all your logging that your getting then just host generated
commands that you get(puts, gets).

I've got an FTP exit program in place to control logins, and to
record the various commands processed by the FTP server on the iSeries:

Exit point: QIBM_QTMF_SERVER_REQ Format: VLRQ0100
Program: #FTPLOGON4

The program logs "gets" gets (among commands). Well, mostly. it
records the SUCCESSFUL gets. If a PC user (for example) issues a get
on a non-existent file, nothing is recorded. All of the successful
gets are recorded just fine.

Is there something in the program I should look at to enable logging
of the unsuccessful commands?
