How to FTP an IFS file on AS/400

ISeries PC/Windows connectivity expert Shahar Mor discusses how to FTP an IFS file to another system.

I need to FTP a file from an IFS folder to another system. How do I do that?

With FTP you can use the IFS structure in the FTP script.

For example:

Quote site namefmt 1
Cd /tmp
Lcd /localdir
Put something.

You can also use a special file system called qfilesvr.400. This directory allows for a simple copy between two AS/400s instead of FTP. More information on setting up qfilesvr.400 can be found here.
