APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • After applying IV08793, FTP client waits for too long
    time before command
    failure in case FTP server connection to the client fails
    due to
    timeout.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • FTP sub-commands like put/get may take long time before
    reporting failure, if FTP server fails to connect to the client
    due to timeout.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified FTP client code to consider actual time that FTP
    server took to report failure, to decide whether to retry the
    command or not. Also, FTP client now doesn't retry the command
    by default.
    

Temporary fix
