Quartz | Level 8

If this is wrong forum, pleast point me to the rigth.

My problem. I made a script in proc ds which catch data from a pxweb server with api. In general it work perfect, but i have one problem. I can catch data from my workstation, but then I use the same script from a server, i got only part of the responsfil. I most case, I got the entire respons, but in some rare occations I got only a part.

I suspect there must be a limit on the server, linux, or the sas-installation which limit the size of the respons file. I hope I can get help to point the administrators of the server in the right direction.

Servers usually have more restrictive firewall settings. This behaviour seems odd though.

What I'd do in the likely case you don't find a fix, and if there is no way to identify the file end, is query the http server several times and check that the response file is consistent.

Thank You for your respons.

I have test the request several times form other servers, with the same script, and got perfect result. And every time I test on the server, I got bad result.

Something, possibly network settings, must be different with this server.

I think You are right. Now I can let the administrator work with the problem.
