Re: TCP3C8A Operation not authorised



fixed

Hi Dave

I guess the error message/id is only half the information needed to
diagnose the fault. Knowing what instruction in the script tripped the
error might provide some insight into what to check.

Is the error being tripped on sign on ? change directory ? put, get, list
etc

If you know more or less what has to be done you can step through the
script steps manually to see if you can reproduce the error and then
suggest a possible corrective action.

The software that Jeff's company supplies to our hardware maintenance
company and which I am trying to get set up, generates a script. When we
ended our phone call about noon our time today, Jeff was going to dig into
the script generation program. We know that the ftp commands aren't written
to the log file and that the error Jeff asked about initially shows up in
the job log.
Chuck: I've never done a trace but sounds like a good idea. I'll see if I
can try that.

As always, if there are any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,

So what function generates the "TCP3C8A Operation not authorised" message,
all of them or a specific operation.

How far does the script actually get ?

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.

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 a chocolate tea-pot.

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