Mine does the same thing as yours, Art, but I tried to get a V5R2 group PTF. However, I think it is some kind of networking issue in my company's network, not with IBM. I am on a VPN connection now so there is lots of address translation going on, and I am wondering if this is what is causing my problem. However I did read through the IBM help screen and I believe I meet all the prereqs for both server and client. Still, I suspect something in our network is not allowing the iSeries to communicate back to my PC. I don't really know how iPTF works - i.e. what talks to what in what sequence, in order to figure it out. But I can see lots of TCP/IP timeouts on QSYSOPR from QYPSJSVR going to an address that is the DNS-resolved addr for my PC's host name but is not the virtual addr assigned to my VPN connection. Without going into too much detail, I suspect that the way iPTF works is not compatible with the way I am connected to our corporate network. I used iPTF before, but not since it has been "fix central", and not sure if I ever used it before when connected via VPN like I am today. -Marty ------------------------------ date: Wed, 24 Mar 2004 14:04:57 -0500 from: "Art Tostaine, Jr." <midrange@xxxxxxxxxxx> subject: RE: IBM Fix Central Broken? Anne: Start here: http://www-912.ibm.com/eserver/support/fixes/fcgui.jsp Then I select Iseries, OS/400, V5R1, etc. I sign in, then select the PTF's I want. Then I enter my system name, user id, password, and I sit there forever. I left it running for over an hour, and it stayed in the same spot. The fact that Rob got his PTF though makes me wonder if I don't have a problem. I used to be able to do this. Art Tostaine, Jr. CCA, Inc. Jackson, NJ 08527
