Unless you really have to FTP the image catalogs, why not just set up the network optical drives so you keep precisely one image catalog, (a catalog holding all the latest IBM i groups and cumulative goes just a shade over 55 Gig now) and use the backplane network to apply PTFs, remote boot and all the like ?

I think the list below will get you there, but why FTP? There are very good instructions on how to set up the network optical drives:
