FTPing between iSeries machines

Here's a simple script to FTP between iSeries machines.

When using the RMTSYS command to FTP between iSeries machines, I have found that in the 'script file' (Text command...

file) that it is sometimes necessary to duplicate the USER command to complete the login.

The first attempt fails causing a 'no login condition'. By duplicating the line, you insure that your FTP log in always completes correctly.

Simple script example:

user <username> <Password>
user <username> <Password>
get <Lib> /<File> <Lib> /<File> quit
