I've got a few tape handling problems on our AS/400.....

(1) I'm trying to read in a 3480 tape created on an MVS system - create a file 
the AS/400, possibly change it and then FTP to another system. I can use DSPTAP
or DMPTAP to see the contents of the tape but I need to put it down
on to the AS/400 as a file. The tape contains an MVS file that's Variable 
with a Maximum Blocksize of 32K. Do you have any idea how to define the
file and what tools to use to change it on the AS/400 before FTPing it?

(2) I'm trying to copy a tape (3480) that was created using IBM's SAVE Entire
System. When I use the DUPTAP command it only copies the first part of the tape 
the part that holds the SAVSYS output. How do I get the system to copy the 

(3) The tools for tape processing seem very limited on the AS/400. Are there any
good tools available form 3rd party vendors that do a better job of handling

Thanks in advance for your help!
