Thanks Pete,

I should have provided a little more info - we are on V3R6 and we execute 
STRHOSTSVR *ALL.
I'm using PC5250 but have played around with Telnet (the eval that was noted on 
this list  a while back - neat little program !
Yep, all the new stuff is "never a dull moment". Just wish I had the TIME to 
devote to it :-(
Once I got it rolling it WAS way cool ! GET lib/file file.txt and BOOM the 
AS.400 file is there.. Pretty slick (and a little scary...) <G>

Thanks !

Chuck
