Hi Domenic, Co:Z SFTP supports direct access to z/OS data sets. So, most scheduling packages will support triggering. If not, we also support FTP-compatible exits and SMF records, so it is possible to use an exit to trigger a job. Kirk Wolf Dovetailed Technologies http://dovetail.com Co:Z

I don't consider the article useless. The take away should be: if you don't lock down your FTP(only) users so that they can't submit jobs then they might do things that you didn't expect. Also, you should secure your system so that arbitrary jobs cannot bind to TCP ports.
