How to import an iSeries file

How can I import a file that is sitting in a network server into an iSeries using FTP? Is it possible that it can be automated within the iSeries?
I assume the file on the server is text file with fixed format. What can be done is this:

-- Enable QNTC. This is a way to map NT drive to the iSeries so that the network file is known to the iSeries as /qntc/servername/drivename/directoryname/filename. You can read more on QNTC here.

-- Copy the text file to the database file using CPYFRMIMPF, as described, here .
