When an FTP transmission is initiated we need to run the CMD: SCANTXTSRC. If we need to monitor for multiple messages we can create a message file (CRTMSGF) to hold the
possible messages you can receive during communications.
use the WRKMSGF command, 12=Work
with message descriptions to enter messages for example:
Opt Message ID Severity Message Text
NET0001 0 No files to receive
NET0002 0 All files received successfully
Then point the SCANTXTSRC command in your control script to that message file.
80 CMDEXC SCANTXTSRC SCANSTRING(*MSGID) FILE(QTEMP/EXTOLNET) MBR(O@CL) MSGQ(C@CL) MSGF(*LIBL/EXTOLNET) MSGID(NET0001 NET0002) IGNO
90 CMDEXC RECASE(*YES) ERRCON(*ABSENT)
The communications will only fail as determined by the ERRCON(*ABSENT) if neither of these two messages is found in the output of the FTP server.
