I am currently specifying an interface from an AS400 based sales order
system (JBA) to an external warehousing system.  At the moment, I do not
know which warehousing system this will be or indeed the platform (AS400, NT
or Unix).  I have done this before but the difference this time is that the
interface is to be done interactively, not in batch, in the past I have used
FTP to send and retrieve files to the remote host.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a possible solution to the problem.  This
is still at an early stage so I have a good chance of pushing this the way I
want it to go (AS400).  Whatever the remote host is to be, I am sure it will
be running TCP/IP so would the use of sockets be the way to go?  If so where
do I start (RPG preferred).
