Error description

  • If customer downloads a host file in text mode on a 3270 session
    that host codepage is 1399 or 1390 unicode with JIS2004 support
    and PC codepage for 3270 file ransfer is specified as 1041,
    the last 3 bytes at the end of each ftp packet ( once per
    8000 byte by default settings) are lost in the transfered
    PC file.
    .
    This symptom does not occur if HCP is 930/939 with PC codepage
    1041.
    

Local fix

  • use HCP 939/930 session if you do not need unicode nor
    surrogate pair support.
    use PC code page 1200 if you can accept that the transfered
    is written in unicode.
    

Problem summary

  • User with CP1399-JIS2004 session found 3 bytes truncated after
    download file from 3270 host.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The error is caused by incorrect length of read bytes was
    calculated when user select PC code page 1041 in JIS2004 support
    session.
    Keep original byte length calculation method for PC code page is
    not 1200(Unicode) in JIS2004 support.
    

Temporary fix

  • yes
