Running a batch file to transfer files from the AS/400 to a PC

How can I run a batch file to transfer files from the AS/400 to a PC with a NT4.0 Scheduler? I have created batch file and it runs fine when I run it from command line. When I schedule it with the Nt4.0 "AT" command, it does not run, it says system name is invalid or not started. I think system32 is running command and does not see router started. I have Client Access installed on a NT server.

One may use the cwblogon utility (find it under the Client Access folder) as follows:

cwblogon systemname /u user /p password

This will solve the fact that Windows NT does not provide passwords cache simulate to windows 95/98.
