Scott,
I think your explanation earlier was good.  I've never done a telnet session
where I didn't get some type of interactive sign-on.  At the time it seemed
odd to me that a telnet session would deliver me to ftp.  It just takes a
few before new things really stick sometimes.

This maybe a stupid question, but when you say:

Which server would I be talking to?  telnet or ftp?  Or the same?
Does the port number define the type of traffic (is that correct term?) that
is allowed?  I mean, if there is only one server, could I do a PUT or STOR
when I initiated a telnet session?


TELNET RMTSYS('xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx') PORT(21)
220 Connection will close if idle more than 5 minutes.
user xxxxxxxxxx
331 Enter password.
pass xxxxxxxxxx
230 XXXXXXXXXX logged on.
syst
215  OS/400 is the remote operating system. The TCP/IP version is "V5R2M0".
time 500
500 Syntax error, command unrecognized: 'time 500 '
rcmd sndmsg test qpgmr
500 Syntax error, command unrecognized: 'rcmd sndmsg test qpgmr'

Anyways, thank you for sharing of knowledge here.  I'm talking to the
network dude now.  I'll update...

Thanks,
Bruce
