Ken.... how do you REALLY feel. :)
If going the SNADS route, why not config the APPC controller over the
ethernet line and then run SNADS over that connection.  That certainly would
be faster than a switched SNA connection.  I have FTPed large files (save
files) between 2 400s on a LAN and do not remember any performance problems.

Add this one to the list of AS/400 FTP horror stories.

Maybe someone on this list can tell us all a bit more about the IP services
on the AS/400. In the meantime, consider this.. Configure a switched APPC
controller on each machine and use SNADS to send the SAVF as a network file
with SNDNETF. You will also have to create distribution entries and queues
to complete the SNA configuration.

OS/400 still does what it was designed to do better.

I thought I had a good plan:
1) Save to *SAVF on System 1 (V3R2), Model D60;
2) FTP *SAVF to System 2 (V4R5) Model 720;
3) Restore *SAVF to System2.

The two systems are side by side, connected through a 10 mg hub.
Testing the process take EXTREMELY long time.The *SAVF contains 905,985
records (records are 528 long). 9 hours after the start of the process
the job display shows only 50,000 I/Os.
I can FTP between my PC and the server at a much faster rate through a
simple modem-to-modem connection (capable of 56k).

What am I missing?
