I regularly do an ftp mget from an example of our favourite platform
(V5R2M0) to my PC (ubuntu hardy). I am making a local copy of a source
About half the time, after transferring lots of members, the job pauses
indefinitely with the last few messages being something like ...
250 File transfer completed successfully.
11826 bytes received in 0.26 secs (43.8 kB/s)
local: QALLSRC.FILE/AA4614.MBR remote: QALLSRC.FILE/AA4614.MBR
200 PORT subcommand request successful.
When running from an expect script, the script eventually times out.
Interactively, I press ctl-C, and ftp tells me
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
Can anybody suggest something I can do to track down the cause of my
problem? I have authority to WRKJOB on the ftp server job only while
things are still working, not thereafter. <sigh />
