I am interested in receiving information from anyone who can help me set up the easiest way to transfer libraries between two AS/400s. I am aware of the Send Network File (SNDNETF) command, but it doesn't seem to work using a save file.

Save files will work fine. You must remember that SNDNETF transmits data, not objects. The file must exist on the receiving system for it to work. This applies to save files as well.
1. Create a temporary save file in QTEMP (QTEMP/XSAVE for example).
2. Save the library on your host system to the save file.
3. Execute SNDNETF to the target system, using the save file name.
4. Create another QTEMP/XSAVE save file on the target system.
5. Execute the Receive Network File (RCVNETF) command or Work with Network Files (WRKNETF) command to receive the file into the QTEMP/XSAVE save file.
6. Restore the library from the save file.

Look into IBM's PRPQ, (5799-EFT). It has a command, Send Systems Management Tools Library (SND-SMTLIB), which does a SAVLIB, SNDNETF, RCVNETF, and RST-LIB for you. SMT uses SNADS so you would have to have it set up before you could use it. The last time I looked, SMT cost $220.
