Transferring DB2/400 data from the iSeries

I want to transfer DB2/400 data from the iSeries system to DB2 on a Linux server. I need clarification whether any conversion is required. Can I use simple FTP to transfer the data, and will all of the data be transferred as it is?
No, you would to get the data in a delimited format with the CPYTOIMPF CL command and then use FTP to transfer the delimited file to another DB2 database server and use their import facility. If the data transfer is going to be repeated frequently, you might want to consider a tool such as the DB2 DataPropagator replication tool.
