If you have NetServer running and have set up shares on the PC's, you can
use the CPY command to copy files directly from the PC to a folder in the
IFS by using the QNTC file system.


I have a PC named I8KWINXP, with drive D: shared as D_I8KWINXP.
>From the green-screen command line on my AS/400, I just executed this


and it copied the file SQL.TXT from the D:\TEMP folder to the /TMP folder in
the IFS.
