Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A PC by default isn’t configured as an FTP server, so your AS400 can’t easily FTP the file.
There are ways to make your PC an FTP server. using FileZilla or CUTE FTP. You can also activate IIS services on the PC so it can function as an FTP server.

BUT THIS ISN’T what you should be doing.

You should direct your AS400 to a properly configured server.
FTP server or File server with IIS or FTP services.

That’s going to be a more secure and static configuration.

AS400 centric method:

Use the IFS on the AS400.
Create a file share on the IFS and dump your files there.
Then from your PC you can map a network drive to the AS400 and easily retrieve the file.

Good luck

    or, on your PC start a FTP session FTP xxxiseriesname sign in GET (library/file) (pclocation) signoff with a quit - You will want to check issues such as BIN for binary transfer, and the naming format QUOTE SITE NAMEFMT 1 to use a more i5 friendly convention - with a suffix denoting file/object type or perhaps you could ask a more specific question such as How do I move a SAVF object to a PC, and then move it to another iSeries
