Getting started with FTP

I'm just getting started with FTP. I am trying to FTP a save file from my PC to our AS/400. When I enter the FTP command followed by the AS/400's IP address, I get a "connected" message, then nothing. About 10 seconds later, I get "connection closed by remote host." Any ideas what could be wrong?

Since you receive "connected" it means you have the FTP server running on the AS/400.

Try to look in the FTP server jobs joblog, the job name is qtftpxxxxx in subsystem qsyswrk.

You can also perform some debug functions on the AS/400 this way:

* netstat and choose option 3
* Find the connection between your machine and the
AS/400 over the FTP port (21), and choose option 5.
