Granted, I don't use it for SNDPTFORD anymore; the internet method is much 
faster.  Well, recently I did have an IBM airhead suggest that if a ptf 
wasn't available via the internet maybe it was available via SNDPTFORD. 
Pi$$ed away a half of a day trying to get SNDPTFORD working until finally 
I talked to someone who could at least fog a mirror and realize they 
needed to release the ptf.

I do use it for alerting IBM when hardware goes kablooie.  And having had 
the IBM guy on site three times in the last two weeks it does come in 
handy.  Then again, those system processor cards with their pesky random 
IPL's don't give the system time to call IBM, before, or afterwards.
I used to like those calls about pieces of hardware being down, that I 
didn't even know about.  That's good service.

Re: AS/400 to IBM connection NOT thru line modems






Fellow AS/400 geeks:

I don't see what all the fuss is about. We haven't bothered with an ECS
connection of any kind in at least eight years.
