Data and File Management
The BOSaNOVA TCP/IP provides advanced data and file management features and tools for AS/400 connectivity:
Data Transfer Function (DTF)
DTF is a 32-bit Windows utility for transferring data in either direction between a PC and an AS/400. The DTF Wizard is used to build a list of profiles that can be automatically transferred. The DTF Scheduler enables transferring data according to a predetermined time and/ or based on a predefined screen trigger that initiates the transfer. The DTF Interface is used to create and view the profiles and profile lists, change parameters and profile lists, and run data transfers interactively.
Native AS/400 File Transfer

The native AS/400 FTP client is designed specifically for use with the AS/400 and supports all the AS/400 naming conventions and file systems. Using the FTP client, users can transfer and receive data to and from the folders area, and from the AS/400 libraries.

Host Explorer
The Host explorer, modeled on the Windows Explorer, enables users to view the AS/400 as if it were another PC on the network. It provides access to all connected AS/400s, displaying libraries and/or files as if they were folders on another (PC) network drive. Host Explorer functions include:
  • drag-and-drop copying of folders or files
  • sending print jobs directly from a PC to AS/400 printer queues
  • a full, customizable toolbar (with or without text labels)
  • adding printer
BOSaNOVA IFS
BOSaNOVA IFS (Integrated File System) is a Windows 95/98/Me utility that enables you to work with AS/400 folders as if they were PC folders. With BOSaNOVA IFS you can:
  • use an AS/400 as a file server for your PC
  • assign a root folder on an AS/400 to an available drive on your PC
  • use IFS in Windows Me, Windows 98, Windows 95 and DOS applications
  • copy folders and files to and from your PC and an AS/400
  • change file attributes and create, browse, rename, move, and delete PC and AS/400 folders and files
