Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Not authorized to what?
If it is the CMD – FTP, check the USRPRF setup
If it is a file source or target, check the object authority & the USRPRF

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. The user starts up ftp by keying the following: FTP RMTSYS('10.1.1.2') The screen goes back to the command line. Upon looking at the job log, this message is returned: Operation not authorized. Other users are able to enter the ftp site. The user in question has the same authorities in his user profile as users that are having no difficulty, as below: User profile . . . . . . . . . . > KENFRY User password . . . . . . . . . *SAME Set password to expired . . . . *NO Status . . . . . . . . . . . . . *ENABLED User class . . . . . . . . . . . *SECADM Assistance level . . . . . . . . *ADVANCED Current library . . . . . . . .

    Operation not authorized. What is the message identifier? I couldn't find any in QCPFMSG nor QTCPMSG at V5R4 that matched that text. Often, without knowing which message it was, the text isn't helpful to anyone who doesn't have the joblog. Sometimes a hundred different messages can have the same text. It might also be useful to know what program sent the message, but the message ID at least is required. Tom

    I found the problem -- WRKFCNUSG had QIBM_QTMF_CLIENT_REQ_0 (ftp initiation) limited to a list of users. I updated the list to include the specified user, and it worked.
