Yes - but that's comparing apples to oranges. The hard work was running the backup (especially if you specified DTACPR(*YES) causing software data compression), not the transfer of the data once created.

SO I tried this. It took me 20 minutes to create a save file on the CISC box... that same SAVF took only 2 minutes to transfer w/FTP to the RISC box. It actually transfers faster than saving to the SAME HARD DRIVE!! I'm also using a 10Mbit LAN -- the fastest that my CISC box supports (tho the new box will probably run 100Mbit once the old one is gone) Not sure what you're missing -- I'm guessing that something is wrong with your network somewhere -- FTP in OS/400 is not the problem.
