For anyone that looked at this the solution was related to the OVRDBF and
DLTOVR commands

This document explains the issue;
https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/problems-ile-batch-ftp-programs-and-activation-groups

The OVRDBF required; OVRSCOPE(*CALLLVL)

And the DLTOVR needed to be change to; LVL(*)

Subject: ftp command fails in batch bound program
Sent by: "MIDRANGE-L" <midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>



Can anyone shed any light as to why the FTP command will work in a CL
program but not in a bound program.

I had a CL Program that ran a FTP script and I needed some date
calculations so I added calls to CEELOCT and CEEDATE and some service
program procedures

Now to compile I create a module then create the program from that module
including the binding directory for the service program.

Now when the FTP command executes I get error CPD0772 Program contains
commands only valid when run interactively.

The line generating that error is FTP RMTSYS(*INTNETADR)
INTNETADR('XXX.130.172.130')

System is V7R3 and fairly recent (November 2019) on PTF's

If I call the program interactively it works fine but running in batch is
where I get this error.

The FTP command when dspcmd shows two proxy chains;
QSYS/FTP
QTCP/FTP

If I do dspcmd qsys/ftp I see the same proxy chain

If I do dspcmd qtcp/ftp I see the command is allowed to execute in;
*IMOD *BMOD *IREXX
*BREXX *BPGM *IPGM
*EXEC *INTERACT *BATCH

So I am obviously missing something - any ideas ?

Thank you for any suggestions
