        I think that there is a 2 gigabyte size limit for SNADS and FTP.
Your best option would be to do a SAVOBJ to tape then restore on the other
system.  If for some reason that's not an option for you or you just want to
max-out that new 100Mbit ethernet card, you can save the object to a save
file with the COMPRESS option set to *YES, then send the save file.  The
save file should be about half the size of the original object.
        BTW, you can send a save file by ftp.  Here are some ftp subcommands
to enable you to do it:
userid
password
namefmt 1
binary
put /qsys.lib/yourlib.lib/savefile.savf /qsys.lib/theirlib.lib/savefile.savf
quit

Subject: Large AS/400 data base file transfers


I've got a customer with a 2+GB file on the AS/400. They are trying to
transfer the file to another AS/400 on the network. SNADS appears to
reject the request due to size limitations. FTP 'hangs' after a long
time. The target AS/400 is brand new with lots of DASD and version v4+.
Any ideas or suggestions?
