You can see where this is going. I have deleted, and will continue to delete user profiles that have been used, and may in fact be used daily or hourly, because I cannot track their usage. These jobs don't hit a subsystem, so I can't get cute with routing entries. Help! Mark, Try the DSPOBJD command (ie DSPOBJD profile *USRPRF *FULL). The "Date last used" on the second screen <u>does</u> get updated if the profile is used for an FTP signon. As you found out, the "Previous sign-on" that is displayed by the DSPUSRPRF command does not. You could use RTVOBJD OBJ(profile) OBJTYPE(*USRPRF) USEDATE(&DATE) to return the "Date last used" to a CL program. Or you could use API's to get the same information. Hope this helps! Richard

Mark, Based on what you wrote I presume all FTP is from remotes using GET/PUT. What's the setting for System Value QRMTSIGN. If it's set at *FRCSIGNON then I'm stumped. If the value is anything else, try the force setting. I sympathize with you. I don't like invisible traffic either. There is an old thread of a memory that all such jobs run in QBASE because the communication connection has to be managed/established thru/from some subsystem, the default being QBASE. Could be wrong, and/or this could have changed thru release levels. Good luck. Jack McGuigan - MIS Manager - American Life Ins. Co.

Mark, One other thing you might look at is the use of an FTP exit program. That should let you log all the information you might need about FTP usage in addition to just the user profiles. I've seen references to IBM's online manuals in other posts on this board. Good luck! Richard
