there is no process to read data written to a pipe

Hi

Greetings.

We are trying FTP from webMethods (on IBM AIX) to Mainframe and seeing intermittent errors like: java.net.SocketException:There is no process to read data written to a pipe.

[FONT=Helv][SIZE=2][FONT=Helv][SIZE=2]What i am guessing after doing reading through forums is, data is written to fifo pipe (basically underlying OS is IBM AIX) by webMethods process. Now client (webMethods) has no “clientSessionTimeout” set in pub.ftp.client:login. so by default, it waits for 10 minutes to receive response from remote FTP server (Mainframe)…

If remote FTP Server doesn’t respond, then webMethods process will think, that "[/size][/font][/SIZE][/FONT]There is no process to read data written to a pipe".
In order to solve, better to make “clientSessionTimeOut” at [FONT=Helv][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000ff][FONT=Helv][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000ff][FONT=Helv][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000ff]ftp.login[/color][/size][/font][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] to 0 or a large number.

[FONT=Helv][SIZE=2][FONT=Helv][SIZE=2]It will make webMethods process to wait until data is read by remote FTP server…
Could you please help if you have any ideas…
