Patrick,

The system we use is using OS/400.  This is the operating system used by the 
machine.  But once this operating system has IPL'd then we start a 36 machine 
(M36 Object) on this system which we have configured so that it takes control 
of about 90% of our devices, so as far as the majority of our users are 
concerned they are still using SSP and the older S/36.  They work into the S/36 
and never see the OS/400 which is behind it.  The problem is that it is the 
system/36 that I want to transfer the files to so that some of our older 
applications can use the data in these files.  Does that make it any clearer??

Regards,

Keith.

Keith,

I'm a little confused about your environment. Are you using the S/36
operating system (SSP) on the Advanced 436 or are you using OS/400? The
last time I touched a S/36 (a *really* long time ago) it did not have
FTP support. But if you are running OS/400 with the System/36
environment then you have FTP. 

If you have OS/400 with FTP support you can automate the transfers from
the NT to the AS/400 with our FTP Manager product
(http://www.patownsend.com/FTPManager.htm). Or you can write your own
interface to FTP using CL and some scripting files. There is an example
of how to do this on the News/400 web site and some other folks will
probably point you to some examples.

hth,
Patrick
