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

My first question would be why not use ftp, but if you don’t want to use ftp you can try Operations Navigator.
Open Navigator go to File Systems/Integrated Files, also open Windows explorer and copy and paste from Windows directory into System Navigator

    FTP is most common. You can also use CPYFRMSTMF to copy from a streamfile into a savefile if you can access any share from the PC. The share can be either on a Windows/Linux server that your AS/400 can access or from your AS/400 out to the network. I haven't tried the iSeries Navigator suggestion, but it seems reasonable that it provides a method. Tom

    FTP seems the easiest to me. Create a save file first on iSeries. On PC: FTP iSeries Logon Change to Binary format PUT

    Navigator has file size limits (I found this out trying to copy a cumulative PTF download) so, depending on the save file size, it may not be an option.

    Navigator has file size limits... I don't know if a limit is in iNav itself or if it's from Maximum file size that can be read or written using the iSeries™ Access File Server, which is 4GB at V5R4. I don't see a figure for i 6.1 yet. Tom

    I like using Ops Nav for this stuff, but submitting the FTP commands are quick and easy. Just remember to type BIN before you issue the FTP send command.

    Try FileZilla and specify /QSYS.LIB as your remote directory will give you the root directory of your system.  Try /QSYS.LIB/MYLIB.LIB replacing MYLIB.LIB with the default library that you want to use.  FileZilla can also be used to upload directly to the IFS drive.

    Another thing to be cautious of when upload SAVF to an I-Series is make sure it will load for the current release. If this file is going to an older system you need to change the target release parameter when creating the file.
