Hi Rob - >That web page is no longer active. We are trying to decide >if using 447 for these files, internal or otherwise, is a >problem on the CRTDDMF command. Actually the page is still active, apparently you have to a cookie set before it can displayed. D*&n stupid on the part of IBM's website designers IMNSHO. Anyway, the applicable part of the page says ... "For a DB2 UDB for AS/400 server, not using the secure sockets protocol, the port should always be 446 or 447. It is recommended that the 446 always be used for clear text transmissions, and 447 be used for IPSec (Internet Protocol Security Protocol Transmissions)." I recommend that unless you find that it creates a problem, that you use different ports for your internal and external DDM files. That being the case, it makes more sense to use 446 for internal and 447 for external, not just because it follows the IBM recommendation, but also because it means that it takes special action to enable a file for external DDM.
