FTP2            START TCP/IP FILE TRANSFER 2           TAAFTPA

 The FTP2  (Start TCP/IP File  Transfer) command allows  the use of  FTP
 without entering  the FTP subcommands.   The subcommands  are generated
 internally  and used to send a  file to a remote system.   A log of FTP
 subcommands,  errors,   and  information   is  kept   to  allow   error
 reporting.

 FTP2  is restricted to  the English  language because  error conditions
 from FTP must be found by scanning text.

 FTP requires the proper TCP/IP connections and configuration.

 A  separate command SBMFTP2 should  be used to  submit the FTP2 command
 to batch (see the later discussion).

 Some FTP  connections may hang  if either  or both  of the  user ID  or
 password exceeds the maximum size supported by the FTP server.

 For a  simple front  end to FTP2,  see the SAVSNDL  TAA tool.   SAVSNDL
 allows  you to to  send an entire  library as a  save file  to a remote
 system.  The  companion command  RSTSNDL restores the  library.   Using
 SAVSNDL  avoids you  having  to  consider  the myriad  of  options  and
 subcommands that are supported by FTP.

 The system  supports a similar  function to SAVSNDL  with the SAVRSTLIB
 command.  SAVRSTLIB uses APPN.  FTP2 uses TCP/IP.

 For  V6R1, the system does not support the  EPSV sub command.  This can
 cause an error which can be avoided with OTHERCMDS('sendespv 0)'.

 A typical FTP2 command would be:

              FTP2          RMTSYS(xxx) RMTUSER(uuu) RMTPWD(ppp)
                              ACTION(*PUT) LCLFILE(xxx) RMTFILE(yyy)

 This would  transfer the file  identified in  the LCLFILE parameter  to
 the file  identified in the RMTFILE  parameter.  When the  FTP function
 is   complete,  the  internal  log  would   be  displayed  of  the  FTP
 operations.   You should  review this  to ensure  the correct  function
 occurred.

 In V6R1,  the system  supported a  standard that  required a change  to
 prevent  an  escape  message  'Subcommand  500  EPSV not  valid'  which
 occurred when sending to a system prior to V6R1.

 Remote secured server
 ---------------------

 FTP2 can  access secured  FTP  servers if  they are  using  SSL(Secured
 Sockets  Layer) and  the  FTP  server's  digital certificate  has  been
 properly imported to your system's certificate store.  This requires:

   **   Digital   Certificate  Manager  (DCM)   Option  34   feature  of
        5761-SS1

   **   IBM HTTP Server Powered by Apache of i5/OS (5761-DG1)

   **   TCP/IP Connectivity Utilities for i5/OS (5761-TC1)

   **   IBM Developer Kit for Java (5761-JV1)

   **   If  running  prior to  V5R4,  IBM Cryptographic  Access Provider
        (5761-AC3 - 128 bit)

 If the  FTP server is  using the  ftps utility from  SSH (Secure  Shell
 Network  Utility)  you  must  use  IBM  Portable  Utilities  for  i5/OS
 (5733-SC1).

 If  the remote site's  FTP server is  secured by SSL, FTP  and FTP2 can
 access its files specifying PORT(*SECURE)  which causes port 990 to  be
 used.  SECCNN(*DFT) and DTAPROT(*DFT) should also be used.

 SBMFTP2 command
 ---------------

 The command  SBMFTP2 is intended  for use when  you want to  submit the
 FTP2 command.

 SBMJOB  can be used to  submit the FTP2  command, but the  value of the
 RMTPWD parameter is left in  the job log of  the user that did  SBMJOB.
 To avoid leaving the password in the clear, you should use SBMFTP2.

 All the parameters of  FTP2 exist on the SBMFTP2 command  plus the JOB,
 JOBD,  and  JOBQ  parameters.    The  additional  parameters  all  have
 default values.

 The  password value does not appear in the  job log of the current user
 if  FTP2 is  used  interactively  or  SBMFTP2  is used.    If  FTP2  is
 submitted  to batch  by either  SBMJOB or  SBMFTP2, the  password value
 does not appear in the job log of the submitted job.

 Using FTP2 with a job scheduler
 -------------------------------

 If  you use FTP,  you must  include a password  with the  command.  The
 FTP2 and SBMFTP2  commands prevent  the password from  existing in  the
 job log.

 However, if  you use a  job scheduler, the  command must be  entered as
 data and the password would exist as data.

 To prevent the display of the password, you can do the following:

   **   Place  the  FTP2 command  in a  CL  program and  enter  the CALL
        command instead of FTP2 in a job scheduler.

   **   After the program is tested, recreate the program:

          --   Specify LOG(*NO) and ALWRTVSRC(*NO) on CRTCLPGM.

          --   Use  CHGPGM  RMVOBS(*ALL)  to  prevent  a  dump  of   the
               program and its variable contents.

          --   Change  the  source  so  your  password  does  not  exist
               within the source.

 Another  alternative is  the  RTVMSKPWD tool.    It will  allow  you to
 retrieve the real password from a secure file in TAASECURE.

 Log file
 --------

 A  data base  file is kept  to log messages  associated with  FTP.  The
 default is FTPOUT in QTEMP with  a member name of FTPOUT.  The  file is
 a  single field  physical that  is created  by copying  the  model file
 TAAFTPAP.

 It  would be possible  to have a single  log file for  all uses of FTP2
 and have unique member  names.  You  could duplicate the TAAFTPAP  file
 and change it to allow multiple members.

 FTP2 escape messages you can monitor for
 ----------------------------------------

       TAA9877    FTP failed - see the log

 Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

 FTP2 Command parameters                               *CMD
 -----------------------

    RMTSYS        The name of  the remote system.  Up  to 255 characters
                  may  be  entered.   *NETADR  may  not  be  used.   The
                  proper  TCP/IP  connections  and  configuration   must
                  exist.

                  In some situations the  name must be in the  same case
                  as its host table entry.

    RMTUSER       The remote  user name to be  used to run a  job on the
                  remote  system.  The  user name must  exist as a valid
                  profile on the remote  system.  A mixed case  value of
                  up to 100 bytes may be entered.

    RMTPWD        The  password  for the  remote  user.    A mixed  case
                  value of up to 100 bytes may be entered.

                  If  FTP2 is  entered interactively, the  password will
                  not appear in the job log of the current job.

                  If FTP2  is entered  using SBMJOB,  the password  will
                  not appear in  the job log of the batch  job, but will
                  appear  in the job  log of the  current job.   Use the
                  SBMFTP2 command  to avoid  retaining the  password  in
                  the current job log.

                  See  the  previous  section for  how  to  prevent  the
                  password  from being seen  if you submit  the function
                  using a job scheduler.

    ACTION        The  action  to  be  performed.    The  following  are
                  supported:

                  *OTHERCMDS.  Allows  no action  to be performed  other
                  than the  commands entered in  the OTHERCMDS parameter
                  to be run.

                  *GET.  Get a single file from the remote system.

                  *MGET.   Get a file(s) from  the remote system using a
                  generic name.

                  *PUT.  Put a single file to the remote system.

                  *MPUT.  Put  a file(s)  to the remote  system using  a
                  generic name.

                  *APPEND.  Append a file on the remote system.

                  *DEL.  Delete a single file on the remote system.

                  *MDEL.   Delete  a file(s)  on the  the remote  system
                  using a generic name.

    NAMEFMT       Sets the  local and remote naming  format.  The remote
                  format is only set for an  i5 System.  The default  is
                  *LIB to  use the library  naming convention.   '0' may
                  also  be  entered  to  mean  use  the  library  naming
                  convention.

                  For example,

                      Change remote directory:
                         cd libname
                      Get file member from current remote directory:
                         get filename.mbrname
                      Get file member specifying the library:
                         get libname/filename.mbrname

                  *IFS   may  be   specified  to  use   the  IFS  naming
                  convention.  '1' may  also be entered to mean  use the
                  IFS naming convention.

                  For example,

                      Change remote directory:
                         cd /qsys.lib/libname.lib
                      Get file member from current remote directory:
                         - qsys.lib/libname.lib file system
                            get filename.file/mbrname.mbr
                         - root file system
                            get filename.extension
                      Get file from named remote directory:
                         - qsys.lib/libname.lib file system
                            get /qsys.lib/mylib.lib/myfile.file/+
                                mymbr.mbr
                         - IFS file system
                            get /dirname/filename.extension

    TFRTYPE       The  file  transfer  type.   The  default  is  *BINARY
                  which    means   to   transfer    the   file   without
                  translation.   This is  required  for save  files  and
                  image files.

                  *BIN may also be entered to mean *BINARY.

                  If  the system  you are  communicating  to is  another
                  System i (AS/400), use the default.

                  *ASCII  or *ASC  may be entered  to assume  the remote
                  system does not support  EBCDIC.  This translates  the
                  data  from  EBCDIC  to ASCII  when  sending  and  from
                  ASCII to EBCDIC when receiving.

                  *EBCDIC or  *EBC may be  entered to assume  the remote
                  system has EBCDIC.  The data is not translated.

    LCLDIR        A  character 2048 byte field  that describes the local
                  directory.  The default  is *CURRENT to use the  job's
                  current  library (*CURLIB)  if NAMEFMT(*LIB)  is used.
                  If   NAMEFMT(*IFS)   is  used   the   default  becomes
                  *CURDIR.

                  *HOMDIR  may  be  entered  to  use  the   user's  home
                  directory if if  NAMEFMT(*IFS) is used.   *HOMEDIR may
                  also be entered to equate to *HOMDIR.

                  *CURLIB  may  be  entered  to  use  the job's  current
                  library (*CURLIB) if NAMEFMT(*LIB) is used.

                  *CURDIR may  be  entered  to  use  the  job's  current
                  directory if NAMEFMT(*IFS) is used.

                  *RMTDIR may  be entered to  use the name  specified in
                  the RMTDIR parameter.

    RMTDIR        A  character  2048   byte  field  that  describes  the
                  remote  directory.    The  default  is  *RMTDFT  which
                  means  to use  the  directory  as set  by  the  remote
                  system.

                  The  special value  *LCLDIR may  be used  to  mean the
                  name specified for the LCLDIR parameter.

    LCLFILE       A  character 1024 byte  field that  describes the file
                  name to be used on  the local system.  The default  is
                  *NONE  meaning that  no  file  is transferred.    This
                  parameter is  used by all actions  except *DEL, *MDEL,
                  and *OTHERCMDS.

                  *RMTFILE may  be specified  to mean  use the  name  as
                  specified in the RMTFILE parameter.

                  If   ACTION(*MPUT)   is  used,   LCLFILE(*)   may   be
                  specified to mean all files.

    RMTFILE       A  character 1024 byte  field that describes  the file
                  name  to be  used on the  remote system.   The default
                  is *NONE  meaning  that no  file  is involved.    This
                  parameter  is used by  all actions  except *OTHERCMDS.

                  *LCLFILE  may be  specified  to mean  use the  name as
                  specified in the LCLFILE parameter.

                  If  ACTION(*MGET)   is   used,   RMTFILE(*)   may   be
                  specified to mean all files.

    REPLACE       A  *YES/*NO  parameter  for  whether  to  replace  the
                  existing  local file(s).   *NO is  the default meaning
                  do not replace.

                  *YES  may  be  specified   to  replace  the   existing
                  file(s).

    OTHERCMDS     A  255 byte  character  field  may  be used  to  enter
                  other  commands that  will be  executed on  the remote
                  system.   Up to 20 commands  may be entered.  *NONE is
                  the  default  meaning no  other  commands  are  to  be
                  executed.

                  If commands  are specified, the  sequence of execution
                  is  1) all  generated subcommands  except for  the one
                  specified by  the ACTION  parameter 2)  OTHERCMDS  and
                  3) the  subcommand specified by the  ACTION parameter.

                  This  parameter is  most useful for  completed control
                  of the FTP session.

                  Note that subcommands  are always  generated from  the
                  LCLDIR    and    RMTDIR    parameters     even    when
                  ACTION(*OTHERCMDS) is specified.

    LOGFILE       The  qualified  file and  member  to  receive the  log
                  generated  by subcommands, errors,  and feedback.  The
                  default is  the  FTPOUT  file in  QTEMP  using  member
                  *FILE (the  name of  the file).   The file  and member
                  are created if they do not exist.

                  If  a  unique member  name is  required,  consider the
                  use of the ADDUNQMBR command.

    DSPLOGFILE    A *YES/*NO parameter  for whether  to display the  log
                  file that  is created.  *YES  is the default  to allow
                  you to review the results.

                  *NO  may be  specified to prevent  the display  of the
                  file.  The file will still exist.

    CLRLOGFILE    A *YES/*NO  parameter for  whether  to clear  the  log
                  file member  when the command  completes.   The member
                  is automatically cleared when the command starts.

                  *NO is  the default to  not clear the  member when the
                  command  completes.    The log  may  then  be reviewed
                  with DSPPFM.

                  *YES may  be specified  to clear the  member when  the
                  command completes.

    CCSID         The ASCII  coded character  set identifier to  be used
                  for  single  byte  character  set  (SBCS)  ASCII  file
                  transfers when TYPE(*ASCII) is  used.  The default  is
                  *DFT which causes the 00819 CCSID to be used.

                  The value  is passed  thru to  the FTP  command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    TBLFTPOUT     The  qualified name  of the  table to  be used  to map
                  all outgoing  data.    Outgoing data  is  mapped  from
                  EBCDIC to  ASCII.   The default  is *CCSID meaning  to
                  use  the  CCSID value  for  mapping.   If  a table  is
                  entered, the table is used for mapping.

                  *DFT  may also be specified  which has the same effect
                  as *CCSID.

                  The value  is passed  thru to  the FTP  command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    TBLFTPIN      The  qualified name  of the  table to  be used  to map
                  all  incoming  data.   Incoming  data  is  mapped from
                  ASCII to EBCDIC.   The  default is  *CCSID meaning  to
                  use  the CCSID  value  for mapping.    If  a table  is
                  entered, the table is used for mapping.

                  *DFT may  also be specified which  has the same effect
                  as *CCSID.

                  The value  is passed  thru to  the FTP  command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    PORT          The  decimal  value that  specifies  the  port  number
                  that is  used for connecting to the  FTP server.  *DFT
                  is the default to use the 'well known' port 00021.

                  *SECURE  may  be entered  to  use use  port  00990 for
                  secure operations.

                  The value  is passed  thru to  the FTP  command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    SECCNN        The  secure  connection  to  be  used.   *DFT  is  the
                  default  to  mean use  *IMPLICIT  if  PORT(*SECURE) or
                  PORT(990) is specified.  Otherwise *NONE is used.

                  *IMPLICIT may be  entered if  the FTP client  attempts
                  to use TLS/SSL.

                  *SSL  may  be  entered   for  requesting  a  protected
                  TLS/SSL session.

                  The  value is  passed thru  to the  FTP command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    DTAPROT       Determines the  type of  data protection  to be  used.
                  *DFT is  the default meaning  if the  SECCNN parameter
                  specifies  a  protected  control connection,  *PRIVATE
                  is used.  Otherwise *CLEAR is used.

                  *PRIVATE  may  be  specified to  mean  the information
                  that is sent is encrypted.

                  *CLEAR may be specified  to mean the information  that
                  is sent is not encrypted.

    OUTQ          The name  of the output queue  to be used  for the log
                  file.   The default  is *JOB meaning  the output queue
                  of the current job.  *DEV may also be entered.

                  The value is only used  if FTP2 is running in a  batch
                  job not  initiated by SBMFTP2.   When FTP2  is running
                  as  the result  of SBMFTP2,  the value  is used  on an
                  OVRPRTF command.

                  The  OUTQ  parameter  is   intended  for  use  in   CL
                  programs that run the FTP2 command synchronously.

 SBMFTP2 command parameters                            *CMD
 --------------------------

    RMTSYS        The name of the  remote system or its IP  address.  Up
                  to  255 characters may  be entered.   *NETADR  may not
                  be   used.     The   proper  TCP/IP   connections  and
                  configuration must exist.

 In some  situations the  name must  be  in the  same case  as its  host
 table entry.

    RMTUSER       The remote  user name to be  used to run a  job on the
                  remote  system.    The user  name  must  exist  on the
                  remote system.    A mixed  case  value  of up  to  100
                  bytes may be entered.

    RMTPWD        The  password  for the  remote  user.   A  mixed  case
                  value of up to 100 bytes may be entered.

                  If  FTP2 is  entered interactively, the  password will
                  not appear in the command prompt nor the job log.

                  FTP2  is  entered  using  SBMJOB,  the  password  will
                  appear  in the  command  prompt, but  not  in the  job
                  log.

                  See  the  previous  section  for  how to  prevent  the
                  password  from being  seen if you  submit the function
                  using a job scheduler.

    ACTION        The  action  to  be  performed.    The  following  are
                  supported:

                  *OTHERCMDS.   Allows no  action to be  performed other
                  than  the commands entered  in the OTHERCMDS parameter
                  to be run.

                  *GET.  Get a single file from the remote system.

                  *MGET.  Get a file(s)  from the remote system using  a
                  generic name.

                  *PUT.  Put a single file to the remote system.

                  *MPUT.   Put a  file(s) to the  remote system  using a

                  *APPEND.  Append a file on the remote system.

                  *DEL.  Delete a single file on the remote system.

                  *MDEL.   Delete  a file(s)  on  the the  remote system
                  using a generic name.

    NAMEFMT       Sets the local and remote  naming format.  The  remote
                  format is  only set  for i5  System.   The default  is
                  *LIB to  use the library  naming convention.   '0' may
                  also  be  entered  to  mean  use  the  library  naming
                  convention.

                  For example,

                      Change remote directory:
                         cd libname
                      Get file member from current remote directory:
                         get filename.mbrname

                         get libname/filename.mbrname

                  *IFS  may   be  specified  to   use  the  IFS   naming
                  convention.  '1'  may also be entered to  mean use the
                  IFS naming convention.

                  For example,

                         - root file system
                            get filename.extension
                      Get file from named remote directory:
                         - qsys.lib/libname.lib file system
                            get /qsys.lib/mylib.lib/myfile.file/+
                                mymbr.mbr
                         - IFS file system
                            get /dirname/filename.extension

    TFRTYPE       The  file transfer  type.   The default is  *DFT which
                  means to  use the  remote  system's default  which  is
                  normally ASCII.

                  *ASCII or  *ASC may  be entered  to assume the  remote
                  system does  not support EBCDIC.   This translates the
                  data from  EBCDIC  to  ASCII  when  sending  and  from
                  ASCII to EBCDIC when receiving.

                  *EBCDIC or  *EBC may be  entered to assume  the remote
                  system has EBCDIC.  No translation is performed.

                  *BIN  or  *BINARY  may  be  entered to  transfer  data
                  without  translation.    This  is  required  for  save
                  files and image files.

    LCLDIR        A character 2048 byte  field that describes the  local
                  directory.   The default is *CURRENT to  use the job's
                  current  library (*CURLIB)  if NAMEFMT(*LIB)  is used.
                  If  NAMEFMT(*IFS)   is   used  the   default   becomes
                  *CURDIR.

                  *HOMDIR  may  be  entered   to  use  the  user's  home
                  directory  if if NAMEFMT(*IFS) is  used.  *HOMEDIR may
                  also be entered to equate to *HOMDIR.

                  *CURLIB may  be  entered  to  use  the  job's  current
                  library (*CURLIB) if NAMEFMT(*LIB) is used.

                  *CURDIR  may  be  entered to  use  the  job's  current
                  directory if NAMEFMT(*IFS) is used.

                  *RMTDIR may  be entered to  use the name  specified in
                  the RMTDIR parameter.

    RMTDIR        A   character  2048  byte  field  that  describes  the
                  remote  directory.    The  default  is  *RMTDFT  which
                  means  to  use the  directory  as  set  by the  remote
                  system.

                  The  special value  *LCLDIR  may be  used to  mean the
                  name specified for the LCLDIR parameter.

    LCLFILE       A character 1024  byte field  that describes the  file
                  name to be  used on the local system.   The default is
                  *NONE  meaning  that no  file  is  transferred.   This
                  parameter is used by  all actions except *DEL,  *MDEL,
                  and *OTHERCMDS.

                  *RMTFILE may  be  specified to  mean use  the name  as
                  specified in the RMTFILE parameter.

                  If   ACTION(*MPUT)   is   used,  LCLFILE(*)   may   be
                  specified to mean all files.

    RMTFILE       A  character 1024  byte field that  describes the file
                  name to  be used on  the remote  system.  The  default
                  is  *NONE meaning  that  no file  is  involved.   This
                  parameter  is used  by all actions  except *OTHERCMDS.

                  *LCLFILE may  be specified  to mean  use  the name  as
                  specified in the LCLFILE parameter.

                  If   ACTION(*MGET)   is  used,   RMTFILE(*)   may   be
                  specified to mean all files.

    REPLACE       A  *YES/*NO  parameter  for  whether  to  replace  the
                  existing local file(s).   *NO is  the default  meaning
                  do not replace.

                  *YES  may  be   specified  to  replace   the  existing
                  file(s).

    OTHERCMDS     A  255  byte character  field  may  be  used to  enter
                  other  commands that  will be  executed on  the remote
                  system.  Up to  20 commands may be entered.   *NONE is
                  the  default  meaning  no  other commands  are  to  be
                  executed.

                  If  commands are specified, the  sequence of execution
                  is 1)  all generated  subcommands except  for the  one
                  specified  by the  ACTION parameter  2) OTHERCMDS  and
                  3)  the subcommand specified by  the ACTION parameter.

                  This parameter is  most useful  for completed  control
                  of the FTP session.

                  Note that  subcommands are  always generated from  the
                  LCLDIR    and     RMTDIR    parameters    even    when
                  ACTION(*OTHERCMDS) is specified.

    LOGFILE       The  qualified  file  and member  to  receive  the log
                  generated by subcommands,  errors, and feedback.   The
                  default  is  the FTPOUT  file  in  QTEMP using  member
                  *FILE  (the name  of the file).   The  file and member
                  are created if they do not exist.

    DSPLOGFILE    A *YES/*NO parameter  for whether  to display the  log
                  file that is  created.  This is the  same parameter as
                  on  FTP2, but  is ignored because  a batch  job cannot
                  display the log file.

    CLRLOGFILE    A *YES/*NO  parameter for  whether  to clear  the  log
                  file member  when the command  completes.   The member
                  is automatically cleared when the command starts.

                  *NO is  the default to  not clear the  member when the
                  command  completes.    The log  may  then  be reviewed
                  with DSPPFM.

                  *YES may  be specified  to clear the  member when  the
                  command completes.

    CCSID         The ASCII  coded character  set identifier to  be used
                  for  single  byte  character  set  (SBCS)  ASCII  file
                  transfers when TYPE(*ASCII) is  used.  The default  is
                  *DFT which causes the 00819 CCSID to be used.

                  The value  is passed  thru to  the FTP  command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    TBLFTPOUT     The  qualified name  of the  table to  be used  to map
                  all outgoing  data.    Outgoing data  is  mapped  from
                  EBCDIC to  ASCII.   The default  is *CCSID meaning  to
                  use  the  CCSID value  for  mapping.   If  a table  is
                  entered, the table is used for mapping.

                  *DFT  may also be specified  which has the same effect
                  as *CCSID.

                  The value  is passed  thru to  the FTP  command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    TBLFTPIN      The  qualified name  of the  table to  be used  to map
                  all  incoming  data.   Incoming  data  is  mapped from
                  ASCII to EBCDIC.   The  default is  *CCSID meaning  to
                  use  the CCSID  value  for mapping.    If  a table  is
                  entered, the table is used for mapping.

                  *DFT may  also be specified which  has the same effect
                  as *CCSID.

                  The value  is passed  thru to  the FTP  command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    PORT          The  decimal  value that  specifies  the  port  number
                  that is  used for connecting to the  FTP server.  *DFT
                  is the default to use the 'well known' port 00021.

                  *SECURE  may  be entered  to  use use  port  00990 for
                  secure operations.

                  The value  is passed  thru to  the FTP  command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    SECCNN        The  secure  connection  to  be  used.   *DFT  is  the
                  default  to  mean use  *IMPLICIT  if  PORT(*SECURE) or
                  PORT(990) is specified.  Otherwise *NONE is used.

                  *IMPLICIT may be  entered if  the FTP client  attempts
                  to use TLS/SSL.

                  *SSL  may  be  entered   for  requesting  a  protected
                  TLS/SSL session.

                  The  value is  passed thru  to the  FTP command.   See
                  the FTP command for additional information.

    DTAPROT       Determines the  type of  data protection  to be  used.
                  *DFT is  the default meaning  if the  SECCNN parameter
                  specifies  a  protected  control connection,  *PRIVATE
                  is used.  Otherwise *CLEAR is used.

                  *PRIVATE  may  be  specified to  mean  the information
                  that is sent is encrypted.

                  *CLEAR may be specified  to mean the information  that
                  is sent is not encrypted.

                  assigned to the current user profile.

                  If  a specific job  description is  entered, a library
                  qualifier may be entered  or the special values  *LIBL
                  or *CURLIB.

    JOBQ          The qualified name of  the job queue to be  used.  The
                  default  is *JOBD  meaning the  job queue  defined for
                  the   job   description   specified   for   the   JOBD
