I've found in the past that the connection can drop during the stage when
it's transforming the spooled file from SCS to ASCII. This stage is, or
certainly used to be, very, very s-l-o-w. The solution is to use 2 output
queues. The first one points to the second with transformation to ASCII. The
second, which is on the same AS/400 as the first, points to the remote with
no transformation. That way there's no long delay between the AS/400 and the
remote device - as soon as the ASCII spooled file goes into send it starts
streaming data. Clunky, but it works.

We had a similar problem with "large" spool files.  The typical reports
are <50 pages, after that, the windoze spool manager would not provide
feedback to the AS/400 and the 400 would think that the connection was
