CFTTCP

[RETRYM = {12 | 0...32767 } ]

  • 12 (default value)

If you enter 0 and if the initial connection fails, no further reconnection attempts are made.

Retry concepts

When specifying multiple hosts in CFTTCP and PROTs/SAPs in CFTPART, Transfer CFT first retries the host and then the PROT/SAP.

For example, if RETRYN is set to 1 and there are two defined hosts and two PROTs/SAPs as shown here:

CFTTCP ... HOST = ( 'IP1', 'IP2'),

CFTPART ... PROT = ( 'PROT1', 'PROT2),

           SAP = ( 'SAP1', 'SAP2'),

The retry order is as follows:

  • IP1 SAP1 PROT1 (first host, first protocol)
  • IP1 SAP1 PROT1 (retry)
  • IP2 SAP1 PROT1 (second host, first protocol)
  • IP2 SAP1 PROT1 (retry)
  • IP1 SAP2 PROT2 (first host, second protocol)
  • IP1 SAP2 PROT2 (retry)
  • IP2 SAP2 PROT2 (second host, second protocol)
  • IP2 SAP2 PROT2 (retry)
