    for IND$FILE download (receive files from host) if a system

    or UID in ISPF causes a change in the host screen. Personal
    Communications is no longer able to recognize the host panel
    because of that change.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users using native file transfer facility    *
    *                 (IND$FILE) in IBM Personal Communications    *
    *                 3270 session to receive files from a host    *
    *                 may not be able to display a list of files   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: PCOMM is unable to display a list of    *
    *                      host files for IND$FILE download        *
    *                      (Receive File From Host... option)      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    User enables system identifier or UID in ISPF screen of IBM
    Personal communications 3270 session. When the host files are
    browsed using the native file transfer (IND$FILE) "Receive
    File From Host..." option, the emulator session fails to list
    the files.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Enabling system identifier / UID in ISPF screen, the keyword
    pattern which is used to recognize the screen is overlayed by
    the system identifier / UID information. This prevents  IBM
    Personal Communcations from recognizing the screens that are
    used to read the list of files.
    
    PCSFTBRW.DLL has been changed to correct this problem.
    
    Fix scheduled for PCOM 6.0.8 Refresh Pack
