------original message---------
Just getting started with FTP and am having trouble connecting to a server
across town.  If I ftp from a command window in Windows, I can connect.  By
the way, the connection does use a different port (221).  Remote host
accepts username & password after connecting.  I want to take advantage of
running some ftp commands in a CL to do a background file transfer once a
month.  FTP server jobs are started (in QSYSWRK) so I'm baffled.  Any
