Hi Brad, Regarding the compression on the AS/400 side, Qshell (command QSH) provides the jar command which produces PKzip/Winzip compatible files, and can decmpress them. If I had an AS400, the transparent compression would sound good, as long as it produced a CD that (in a pinch) could be read and decompressed in the AS400's CD reader (OPT01 or whatever).
