Use RCMD FTP subcommand (i.e. Remote CoMmanD)
or whatever. This runs the relevant command on your FTP target box.
You can do this from a PC FTP client too if you use the form
quote site rcmd ...
Extremely useful in my experience (e.g. in ftp batch scripts).

Subject:  Commands on Remote FTP

I've seen that AS400 FTP allows a limited number of FTP sub-commands to run
on the remote AS400 (ADDM, DLTF etc). I was wondering if there was a way of
running other AS400 commands on the remote server.
For instance, I want to transfer a Save file to machine x. Is there some
of running the RSTOBJ command to unpack he save file, without me having to
sign on to machine x to issue the command?
