FTP login

I'd like to be able to have a user connect via FTP from a PC to our iSeries, login, and have the user profiles initial program run immediately. We've tried several options, but the initial program doesn't run unless a user signs on to a Session. This is not an option. Can you help?
It is possible to run any command on the iSeries via FTP session. So if, for example, the log-in program name is mylib/mypgm the following will run the initial program:

quote rcmd call mylib/mypgm
