Thanks, I had the user check and he tried 2 different size files and
they both made it there Ok even with the error message, so that is fine.

Any suggestions on the password problem? The user has a .shosts file in
his home directory on the unix box and the format looks correct (same
format as in his .rhost file which works Ok for an RCP).

Have you looked at the transferred file to see if it's complete? I
believe this is due to the fact that file transfer sizes are estimated,
and text file sizes for files that that originate on VMS systems may not
be estimated exactly. Hence, the EOF warning. Provided the file got
there properly (and it likely did), this warning can be ignored.
