Transferring Data Between AS/400 and VSE?

I have an AS/400 and a VSE.  Right now, I'm using 5 ftp sessions to transfer data between them.  It is critical that I find a better way to do this because the number of necessary ftp sessions keeps increasing.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Does VSE support save files?
Does VSE support Distributed Data Management(DDM)?

if not what other backup formats does it support?

How oftern do you need to transfer the data?

Why do the necessary sessions increase, could the transfers be all stuffed into one FTP session, or are they on different times? And what is a VSE?

Looks like VSE runs DB2, so does the AS/400. You could use "DB2 Connect" to transfer data between the systems then...

Hi
if you are running CICS under VSE then you can use ddm

http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0ISJ/is_n3_v31/ai_12547732/pg_1

see
http:Q_20662875.html
on how to configure ddm over IP for the AS/400.

You can then simply use the OS copy file command over the DDM files.

DDM is certainly _possible_; whether it can be used will depend on installed options and configuration.

Be very aware of DDM password/security needs under TCP/IP. It's totally possible to have your AS/400 wide open without quite realizing it.

Are the transfers in both directions? If not, which direction?

If you find FTP an unacceptable solution, try MQ.

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/integration/mqfamily/platforms/vseesa/

On the AS400, Unix and win2000 platforms it works very well with a high reliability and performance.
I have no experience on VSE, but I trust IBM on this one.
