Chris, Some thoughts/questions: Are you getting any error messages in the job log related to the data queue not being large enough for the data? Any error messages in QSYSOPR? We've used the technique of overriding ICF files to data queues without any problems in X.25 applications, so I would look for something like this. Do you have a communications trace of the session? If so, look to see what the AS/400 does when it receives the data. If it issues an X.25 reset this would be an indication of configuration mismatch. hth, Patrick -- IBM AS/400 communications, FTP automation, and network security software and consulting services. http://www.patownsend.com Chris Bipes wrote: > > Help!
