Hi Rob - >But the darn thing will vary! 10516, 10530, etc. My >thought is to only open up 10500 through 10599.

There are two ports involved: the source port and the target port. The source port can vary, the target port should not. Fortunately, the target port is the one that needs to be open in the router. According to the service table on my AS/400, DDM without SSL is 447, DDM with SSL is 448. Run your UPDDTA and run NETSTAT *CNN from another session. In NETSTAT find the session where the UPDDTA is running. Use F14 to show ports by number rather than name. The local port should match the changing numbers that you are seeing in the joblog. The remote port should stay the same each time and will persumably be 447 or 448. Have the Cisco kid open up just remote port(s) that you need. Ken Southern Wine and Spirits of Nevada, Inc.
