It's built into QSHELL (Java environment) and it's packaged free with
every System i and earlier boxes. The nice part is it's also
compatible with PC Winzip.

I know it's been written about before. When I Googled it I saw
Scott's page here:

Would you elaborate, Sal. I'm not aware of any zip function native to
the System i other than PKWare's version, which isn't free.

One thing you may want to try is compressing the SAVF using ZIP before
FTP'ing it. Should cut it's size pretty drastically and ZIP is free
on your System i.

I increased the FTP activity timeout on the destination AS400 to 5000
seconds but no change other than it waited longer to come back with:

Unable to send data to server.
No response from remote host; all connections closed.

V5R3 supports DTACPR as well; I use it at *MEDIUM all the time. On a
typical library containing PFs I get 80-90% compression. For instance

I

recently saved a 149GB library to a 17GB SAVF.

You might also try to CHGFTPA and up the inactivity timeout. I've seen
it in the past where a session would timeout even though a transfer was
in progress.

We are on v5r3 on both machines.

Have you looked at V5R4's DTACPR(*HIGH) or *MED? Compared to these
DTACPR(*YES) is a sick joke.
