Another option for you is to use Guild's FTP Daemon for Windows ( ). You are able to set individual FTP users and direct them to the appropriate home directories for that user, in this case \folder1\folder2\myfolder. No need to set up sharing on you laptop. Eliminates a bunch of work. Set up your FTP script on the IBM i instance to send the file over. Very little mess, no fuss. The windows firewall can be set to only allow the connection from your IBM i box as well.

I would use Scott's FTP API to do the work. The basics are simple. You have
a command fired by the Job Scheduler to send the file.

I would look for FTPOBJ for example code of
AS/400 to AS/400 transfer using FTP. You might consider just sending the
actual file AS/400 library to AS/400 library rather than to an IFS
directory. You could then transfer it to an IFS directory if you had to have
it there.

Is the purpose of this exercise to ultimately get the file back to an AS/400
QSYS library. How is the file going to get transformed from an AS/400 file
to something a PC could use (If you want it for input to a PC process)?
