After going to school to become a network administrator, Mike, fell in love with programming. He has been a midrange (IBM i, iSeries, AS/400) developer since 2000. He has since added ASP.NET to to his toolbox (around 2006) and now does dual duty writing/supporting green-screen applications and ASP.NET internet and intranet applications. He does a lot of integration between the IBM i and ASP.NET.

Besides his programming day job, he dabbles in PHP and many other areas of tech.

You can find him on his website, @MikeWills, Facebook, and Google+

Can't Exchange just send out the pager message directly? You are counting on 4 pieces (Exchange, IBM i, FTP, Paging system) all being up all of the time.

Can you provide more details? You want to execute a command on the i or on a PC? What would be executing this command?

Your assumptions are correct. I clarified that.

comment How big of a problem is it to punch a hole in the DMZ to one web server?
That depends on what you mean by sanity checks. In a case like this, we would avoid as much SQL as possible (since RPG can "read" databases) and validate the data coming in before processing it. Also, most of the data being entered into back-office software would probably be added to an "inbox" for the employees to deal with manually.

I love this information. Before I asked, I understood some of the things you talked about. But a lot of it I didn't fully grasp. Thanks!

@SpacemanSpiff I tried from the minimal knowledge I have of the network. I am a developer planning this next project and coming up with options.

comment What does “Maximum failsafe period has expired” mean?
Our mail server sends out "this couldn't be sent for the last 4 hours" as a bounce message. This happens almost immediately. Google searches haven't turned up anything for me.

comment What does “Maximum failsafe period has expired” mean?
It is home-made. In a program loop for each email address, we send out one email.

comment Restore From Database instead of File
Thank you, the process isn't difficult nor takes very long. But anything that cuts down time and steps is better in my eyes. So I had to ask.

That link is broken. I am guessing it's .com not .cim.
