I used the same method when the cume first came out. Put it in before I left for the day, and everything was down in the image catalogue when I got back the next day.

I did have problems, because of our "new and improved" firewall with Download Director and interactive FTP, but the batch script worked. Did you try Download Director? It's pretty neat (i.e., it'll download multiple images simultaneously), but you have to run it from your PC, not the i5.

Subject: Batch FTP failing to Fix Central

Hey all!

I am trying to run an iSeries batch script FTP to get the lastest cume
images from IBM. It always gets the first file, a small text, then it
sometimes gets the second file, another small text. It gets all or
part of the first (of 12) images, and then fails on all others. The
message I am getting is that it is unable to open the connection. I
can get more detail if needed.

Anyone else having this problem today or can tell me why it will only
get some of the files? Connection is to ftp ptf.boulder.ibm.com



Script follows;

user anonymous (password)
namefmt 1
lcd /ptfcatalog
cd /ccss/lv1/us37301/b8037301/00643676/c
get ftpSF99540.txt
