  220-QTCP at xx.
  220 Connection will close if idle more than 5 minutes.
> xxxxxxxxxx
  331 Enter password.
  230 xxxxxxxxxx logged on.
   OS/400 is the remote operating system. The TCP/IP version is "V5R2M0".
  250  Now using naming format "0".
  257 "QGPL" is current library.

  500 Syntax error, command unrecognized: 'rcmd sndmsg hello qpgmr'
