Take the drive mapping out of you're thinking. That is specific to that laptop and user. You need to setup FTP on the server that you have the drive mapped to. Then FTP from the iSeries to the Windows server and put the file in the appropriate folder on the server. It will then appear on your mapped drive.

Subject: FTP from AS400 to a mapped drive on the network

Good morning / afternoon:

My challenge is to use FTP to be able to transfer a file from the AS400 into a subfolder in a mapped drive that I have on my laptop. I want to:

AS400 library / file: PVIDAL/MYFILE
Network mapped drive: M
Network folder to save the data: \folder1\folder2\myfolder

I want to be able to initiate the process, not from the laptop, but from the AS400 itself, via a custom command, something like:

Command name: SNDDMTDTA

(a) AS400 File name: MYFILE
(b) As400 Library name: PVIDAL
(c) Network folder name: MYFOLDER

Is there any example out there that you are willing to share? Thanks in advance!
