Using a Windows FTP server to pull data from an IFS directory

ISeries PC/Windows connectivity expert Shahar Mor explains how to use a naming format to pull data from an IFS directory.

I am using a Windows FTP server to pull data from an IFS directory. I understand how to FTP LIB/FILE/MBR, but how about an IFS object?
The key is using a naming format that maps to the IFS:

quote site namefmt 1

Then you can do directory manipulation as needed, for example:

Cd /tmp
Get something
