This is exactly what I tried to get done for a previous client. However, the
PC group would not allow the PCs to run an FTP server because of "security
concerns". Instead they gave me a little PC based script program and file
for executing the transfer at the PC end. I was told this was what they
currently used in another application for file transfer. I could adapt the
script file then copy it to a network drive or the hard drives of all the
PCs that might need it.

The script began by signing on to the AS/400 as QSECOFR and contained the
password, which was also the name of the company, in clear. So much for
security concerns. Unfortunately the PC group were also responsible for the
AS/400. They regarded it as a distraction from their real jobs. After all,
the AS/400 only ran the company's business. The PC's were used for really
important things like creating presentations, e-mailing jokes round the
company, and saving time by producing purchase orders in Word or Excel
instead of through the accounting system. They apparently gave out the
QSECOFR password quite happily to more or less anyone. It was never changed
because it was hardcoded in so many PC files, and presumably they couldn't
be bothered anyway.

I  have done this.  If you have FTP services running on your NT server do
the following from an AS400 command line.

1. FTP "NT server name or Address"
You should now be prompted to log on.
2. log on to your NT server
3. use the PUT command to FTP the file from your AS400 to your NT. (PUT
YourLib/YourFile.YourMbr NTDirectory/File.type)
