I can telnet to client, no probs.
I can ftp to client with script
        binary
        put mylib/mysavf  theirlib/theirsavf
no probs.

I can telnet to client and perform FTP '127.0.0.1' with sample script
        quote time 500
        quote rcmd sndmsg Hello QPMR
no probs.

This tells me that the client ftp server *does* allow the quote command to
execute.  Not sure if the server does anything diff when ftp'ing to itself.
I assume that it still behaved as client and server so the rcmd would
execute exactly like if it was from a real remote host.  Maybe that's my bad
swag.

Both machines are iSeries running v5r2.  Not sure about ptf levels on each.

Thanks,
Bruce
