I can and have done the automated FTP to an NT server, and I know that 
W95/98/NT comes with FTP and I have used that in an interactive process where I 
start a DOS session, run ftp to the AS/400, logon and download.  What I would 
like to do is automate file transfers to the PC from the AS/400 without PC user 
intervention.  A scenerio something like this....

User starts a CA 5250 session
Signons and gets a menu
runs one of my applications (like a class roster)
presses a command key that I have labeled "copy roster to C: drive"
RPG/CL application builds the file, does CPYTOPCD, initiates FTP on the AS/400 
to put it to C: drive on the PC
