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

If I understand your question correctly, you are asking how to ftp to an iSeries and how that command would be used.

The command is used as follows:

ftp ‘xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx’ where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the machine you want to ftp into.

The use for such a command is just as its name implies. It is used to transfer files from one machine to another. It can also be used to send commands or start a program which is why most places have it locked down with some sort of security.

As to your second question, the admin will most likely have the telnet command secured in some form or fashion. That means that you will need their permission to telnet into that machine.

    I think you may need more information to get it to work. To be able to get the FTP to work, you need to start the FTP server. Use STRTCPSVR *FTP. IBM has provided exit points to assist you to control who has access to use FTP. I have worked on systems where FTP access has been restricted to 2 people/user profiles. Check with your system administrator who may need to add you to the table of authorized FTP users. This would be a home grown application.
