Jean,

You can initiate the transfer from either the AS/400 or the PC. If you
initiate from the AS/400 you will need an FTP server on the PC. Microsoft
provides a free one in IIS (yuck) or you can get a third party solution (I
like Ipswitch myself).

You will need to understand the "namefmt" FTP sub-command to manage IFS
files and files in the QSYS library system. If you initiate from the PC your
session might look something like this:

   open 1.1.1.1      // use your AS/400 IP address
  user username    // use your AS/400 profile
  pass password   // use your AS/400 password
  binary
  cd /tmp
  get file-name
  quit

We have a commercial product that automates transfers from the AS/400 to PCs
(and anything else). It has an IFS scan module that can pick up files and
transfer them. More information here: http://www.patownsend.com
