Is there a way to have the file exist and maintained on the 400, then start the PC app from the 400 (RUNRMTCMD or STRPCCMD), which could download it into the VB app, do its thing, then upload the results, if useful, and process as needed?

Can anyone recommend an automated device that will call a list of phone numbers, play a message, and provide feed back on success or busy?
I have a customer that is using a device from US Netcom to call utility customers and warn them of impending service interruptions. Even though it attaches via a serial port they won't release the protocol and require the use of a PC. This makes it a manual process to load the list (file not individual numbers) and it only prints the results report so it has to be manually re-entered into the customers. US Netcom finally provided some APIs to the PC programs but this still requires a PC and VB programs. I would like to find something that can interface directly to the iSeries via serial or maybe even TCP. They only use one phone line so it doesn't need to be a very large system.
