I do want to be able to do a call XDXA from my pc at home, let it do it's thing, and then have it back up in the morning with the results waiting for me. It might not take too long, since I did one back in the summer. But I'm not sure how long it would be.> Something else for you :-) What I did was setup a regular ole PC as the System Console, with a TwinAx card in it and running a 5250 emulation package (I'm using the products from Synapse). Also loaded on this PC is PC Anywhere. I can dial into the system from home and access the System Console. I execute a SAVALL program that we have (that does the complete system save and can also do RCLSTG, RCLDLO, etc.) and then I can either stay connected or drop off and reconnect latter to see how it's going... Saves me having to drive in (45 minutes one way) and check it to be SURE it is up for users... and I can see what it is doing if something bombed since this is taking over the System Console (where as the normal way we dial in requires the system to be "up"). Sweet :-) Chuck
