I don't know anything about Connect Direct/NDM jobs and i need to NDM files from Mainframe to AS400. Can somebody please have some tutorial/doc for Connect Direct or at least some site that has the tutorial. Thanks
File transmission protocol software.
Normal Disconnect Mode. No connection is established to another station on the physical medium.
Network Data Mover (NDM) is a legacy file transfer product developed by System Center. NDM is now owned by Sterling Commerce and has been renamed to Connect:Direct.
Just a quick Overview on Connect:Direct
Today's organizations need more than FTP. Every organization depends on the reliable movement of files. From batch integration, to the movement of large images or catalogs, to the synchronization of remote locations or disaster-recovery sites, your business needs file transfer. For years, many organizations have turned to unmanaged, unsecured FTP to meet this need. But increasingly rigorous security policies and shorter processing windows have companies looking for alternatives to traditional FTP.
File transfer you can count on. Connect:Direct is the point-to-point file transfer software optimized for high-volume, secure, assured delivery of files within and among enterprises. Proven in the demanding financial services and telecommunications industries, where it moves terabytes of business information daily, Connect:Direct can deliver your files with:
Predictability ? Assured delivery is provided via automated scheduling, checkpoint restart and automatic recovery/retry
Security ? Ensures that your customer information stays private, and that your file transfers are auditable for regulatory compliance via a proprietary protocol, authorization and encryption
Performance ? Handles your most demanding loads, from high volumes of small files to multi-gigabyte files
Connect:Direct provides a common command structure and syntax across most operating systems in commercial use today.

If you're going to be supporting CONNECT Direct, regardless of platform, as a former product Administrator, I'd highly recommend that you take advantage of the various training courses offered by Sterling Commerce for the product. In addition, I'd recommend regularly attending their company-sponsored conferences, and possibly joining one of the Sterling Commerce user Forums.
