- Start incoming command service and use runrmtcmd on the iSeries. This allows for longer commands and is much more flexible (you can send command to the pc from a batch job for example.)
- Use strpccmd but run a batch file. The batch file (located on the PC or any network drive) can receive shorter parameters and to operate within the 128 length barrier.
