Angela, Remove the 's from your port number, and it should work (it does for me, from Win98... you didn't say what operating system, but I figured it had to be some variant of windows if you're using a .BAT file) I use it for port 8021 all the time. I use a batch file called "asput.bat" which I use from the command line to stick things onto my AS/400 through an FTP proxy that's located on port 8021. It looks like this: @echo off echo open 192.168.3.77 8021 > %temp%\asput.fts echo klemscot >> %temp%\asput.fts echo password >> %temp%\asput.fts echo quote site namefmt 1 >> %temp%\asput.fts echo binary >> %temp%\asput.fts echo put %1 %2 >> %temp%\asput.fts echo quit >> %temp%\asput.fts ftp -s:%temp%\asput.fts del %temp%\asput.fts then I run it like so: asput C:\leopard.jpg /qopensys/testsck/leopard.jpg On Thu, 10 Jan 2002, Angela Wawrzaszek wrote: > My ultimate goal is to be able from an outside source FTP to a server > at our business.
