I've never worked with SSP 7.1.  If its like the old boxes you will be 
interested in a thick manual called "Communications Manual," especially 
Chapter 12.  I suspect your box has communications built in.  On a Sys/36 
we set up communications, then could start communications with whichever 
remote site we wished, and using POP could put a "T" in front of the file 
name and it would begin and complete the file transfer process.  Very easy 
once set up.

Subject:        RE: Transferring files from NT to System/36

Patrick,

The system we use is using OS/400.  This is the operating system used by 
the machine.  But once this operating system has IPL'd then we start a 36 
machine (M36 Object) on this system which we have configured so that it 
takes control of about 90% of our devices, so as far as the majority of 
our users are concerned they are still using SSP and the older S/36.  They 
work into the S/36 and never see the OS/400 which is behind it.  The 
problem is that it is the system/36 that I want to transfer the files to 
so that some of our older applications can use the data in these files. 
Does that make it any clearer??

Regards,

> Keith
