I've gpt a V3R2 system, (Model 200) and a V4R5 system (Mod 270) that I
just got on Friday.  SO I tried this.

It took me 20 minutes to create a save file on the CISC box...  that same
SAVF took only 2 minutes to transfer w/FTP to the RISC box.  It actually
transfers faster than saving to the SAME HARD DRIVE!!  

I'm also using a 10Mbit LAN -- the fastest that my CISC box supports (tho
the new box will probably run 100Mbit once the old one is gone)

Not sure what you're missing -- I'm guessing that something is wrong with
your network somewhere -- FTP in OS/400 is not the problem.
