Hi All,

At my shop, running OS/400 V3R2M0 with NT clients and Novell Server
(5.1), we have some problems with file transfers.

1) Using Client Access V3R2 at a certain file size the incorrect number
of records is transferred, while it end stating that "file transfer
completed successfully". The file contains about 600 records, but you
will only receive 450 records. The factor is most times 2/3 of the
number of records sent over. This did not happen at Client Access V3R1.

2) Mapping the IFS and the folders (QDLC) as a drive on the network
causes corrupted data to be transferred. You copy a file from the
network drive L: to the folders, drive I:, and viewing the result shows
you, that the first record already is corrupted with more corrupted
records at regular intervals. I have to add this is not always the case,
but it occurs sometimes.

3) FTP from the network to the IFS or from the AS/400 to the IFS (as a
mapped drive on the network) gives the same results as in problems 2.
FTP-ing from the server L: to the AS/400 does not give any corrupted
data (yet), the same applies to FTP-ing from QDLC (as a mapped drive) to
the AS/400. And I have read somewhere that you can not FTP to the IFS.

We have figured it out that problem 1 is caused by blocking factors
between the AS/400 and the NT client/Novell server.

I would like to ask the following questions. I hope you may be able to
answer them:

1) Where can I find and configure the file transfer blocking factor on
the AS/400 or an NT client/Novell server?
2) Which PTF should have been applied to get CLient Access V3R2 to work
properly?
3) Are there other possibilities to copy a file from the AS/400 to the
network, and vica versa, without receiving corrupted data or incomplete
files (missing records)?

TIA,

Carel Teijgeler.
