Hi Angie:
Seems like either your firewall or router is blocking the FTP request,
most likely the firewall.  You will need to have a rule added that will
allow FTP from the internet to the AS400's internal address.  Keep in
mind, this could open up the box to problems so be careful.  If the
location that is going to send to you is always the same, you may want
to have the added security of only allowing certain IP address the
ability to FTP to the AS400 from the internet.  If your network security
people object to the hold in the firewall, you may want to look at a VPN
solution.  Once to establish a VPN connection to your network, the PC
will look to the network like it is physically connect to the local
network and can access anything on the network as if you were in your
office.

I am able to ping the IP address from home.  I gives me an invalid
parameter if I try and specify the port,  but just the IP I have no
problem pinging it.  We do have a router and firewall and I was
concerned that they may prevent me from getting through.  But there
should be some way around this with security isn't there.

We have a citrix server which will probably be what the other division
will be using to sign on and use the software to analyze the data all
the divisions will be sending here.  So they could send the data when
they are connected on here but I was hopeing that they could set up a
procedure to automatically update there data daily/weekly regardless of
whether they are signing in to use it.

Angela,

I believe that error is a timeout.  Can you ping the FTP Server?  You
may have an issue with a firewall or router that is preventing you from
reaching it from outside your local network.
