1) I'm the user that Jeff Bull is referring to.
2) Rob's suggestion - Entering WRKREGINF EXITPNT(QIBM_QTMF_*) and using option 8 shows no exit programs on any of the Lines.
3) Tried WRKFCNUSG and the result is several screens of information that I don't understand - any help in what to look for Evan?
4) Scott's question - entered WRKFCNUSG FCNID(QIBM_QTMF*) - again a long list of functions - What to look for.
5) Also, Evan. We tried two modes in the passive area of their software and same result.
6) Evan - our network guys assure us that ports 20 and 21 are open with no restrictions.

Jeff is not on our system so I pretty much have to be the eyes in this situation.
And we're 6 hours apart - Jeff in England and I'm in Wisconsin. Bit of a challenge.

Thanks everyone for your continuing help.

Whichever applies

Well, the usual questions that apply when discussing FTP:

1 - Are there any programs shown in WRKREGINF EXITPNT(QIBM_QTMF_*), 8=Work with exit programs There might be a "security exit point program" in place that has some unique conditions that only affect this person. I've written some from scratch - it's possible.

2 - Anything interesting in iNav's area that also does roughly the same thing? If you need help hunting down the area of iNav that handles this, let me know.

I have a remote user trying to use an FTP script, for ALL the other remote
users it logs onto my server, PUTs a file on my system and QUITs.
This one user gets this message in their joblog when they try to do the
exact same thing ... five attempts than abends.
I have googled the TCP3C8A but the webpage that comes up is less use than
chocolate tea-pot.

I need a large can of inspiration if someone can supply?
