    By starting FTP download from the console,we no need to bother about disruptions in downloading. Is that make sense?

    Is that make sense? No. What does the console have to do with disruptions for FTP? Tom

    Here is a 'pony time' story. Once 'upon a time', there was a number of groups to download from IBM. Unsure, of exactly the quickest way to get them, the Sys Admin called Mr. IBM. Together they discussed the different options and decided the best time to get the groups were in the middle of the night. So, Mr. IBM put the groups on an FTP server for the Sys Admin and emailed him a list of the file names to get. Sys Admin, created a cl program to connect to Mr. IBM's FTP server and download each group. The downloaded took so long and sometimes bombed out for reasons Sys Admin blamed on the network Gods. But, finally, they came through. It would have been better to ordered everything on cd and be done with it. But here is a sample of the code: PGM OVRDBF FILE(INPUT) TOFILE(*LIBL/QCLSRC) + MBR(AA1PTF) FTP RMTSYS(PTF.BOULDER.IBM.COM) DLTOVR FILE(INPUT) ENDPGM: ENDPGM RETURN In a text file: profile password namefmt 1 lcd /fixes ascii get ftpSF99540.txt get ilstSF99540.txt cd /ccss/lv1/us03368/b8103368/00671173/c binary get SF99540_1.bin quit Almost forgot. The groups came in and were loaded on the system and the Sys Admin after many hours of watching the lights blink went home and lived happily ever after.

    You may find IBM's Download Director helpful. It allows one to recover if the download is interrupted and picks up right where it left off. It is pretty cool. Runs on your PC.
