Sending a file from the iSeries 400 to a third-party vendor

I need to send a file from the iSeries 400 to a third-party vendor via the modem on an Async line. I can't get it to work. The line/dev could be set up wrong or my CLP could be wrong. Do you have an example of this I could go by?

The easiest way is to set the line description to include the following:


In your HLL program, open the device description of the ICFF file you want to send, and write to it. If you need a package to do it, I highly recommend the packages by Trailblazer.
