PubNet Error Codes

The document is sourced from PubNet.

This document identifies the system messages provided by the Standard FTP software.

The status line for a put command is 140 characters in length and formatted, as follows:

literal character position

sender= 1
receiver= 44
aprf= 89
snrf= 109
status= 129

A status of '0000' indicates the transaction was sent with no observed errors; any non-zero status code relates to the EAP error codes, except the digit 3 is dropped. For example, a status of 0001 indicates EAP error code 301; a status of 0004 indicates EAP error code 304. If the status of a transaction is non-zero, a second information line will appear for that transaction.

The status line for a mblist command is 87 characters in length and formatted, as follows:

Data Content character position

Sender 1
Recv’d Status 38 (Y or N)
Service Ref. 70

A sample session is provided next, and the EAP error codes are provided at the end of the document.
