    Connecting to IBM iSeries FTP Server

    Directory: /QSYS.LIB/QGPL.LIB


    Directory: /QSYS.LIB/USERLIB.LIB

    Add the following lines to the FTP setup ‘Send Command(s) after connect’ option:

    quote site namefmt 1
    quote site listfmt 1

    quote site namefmt 1 : this command is going to tell to the remote AS400 FTP server to put himself in a regular unix standard naming schema.
    quote site listfmt 1 : this command is going to tell the remote AS400 FTP server to display the list (when you do the ls command) of its file like a unix machine.

    We are searching for a user who is willing to test this. Please let us know if you would like to help us.

    Trigger an email alert when files build up in a folder

    Dear Users,

    We got the following request from a user: ‘Trigger an email alert when files build up in a folder’. Although this isn’t the goal of our file transfer tool we decided to give it a try.

    What we did to achieve this:

    1) Add the Windows Source folder you want to check

    2) Add the following ‘On Rule Begin’ Pascal Script. This script will reset the file counter when the rule is triggered.

      psExitCode:= 1;
      // Reset File Counter

    3) Enable ‘Copy Files’ and ‘Preference Order’ in the Function Setup.

    4) Add two destinations. Important, the first destination must be ‘Pascal Script’. The second destination is ‘SMTP’ (email).

    5) Destination Pascal Script. Please adjust the ctMaxFiles constant value that will be used to trigger the email. At the moment this is set to 10 files.

      ctMaxFiles = 10;
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      If psCounter = ctMaxFiles then
        psLogWrite(1, '', 'Max Files Reached, Counter Value: ' + IntToStr(psCounter));
        psExitCode := 0;

    6) Setup the Destination SMTP options. These will be used when sending the email.

    7) The result. Single email event when files build up in a folder.

    If you need any help, do not hesitate to ask. We are here to help.
