If you have an interest, I have implemented an FTP transfer utility that
uses Scott's FTP client under "FTP Objects between Systems" at
www.think400.dk/downloads.htm. Might give you some ideas.

Hi, Kevin,

If you are just invoking the built-in IBM_i FTP client in batch, then it
just reads from a "script" of input commands, and tries to execute them,
one after another. It does not know or care if errors occur.

To really handle such situations properly, you should consider using a
tool like Scott Klement's excellent LIBFTP (aka. FTPAPI ...). See:

http://www.scottklement.com/ftpapi/

for details. It comes with lots of "sample" programs to illustrate its
uses. It was custom-designed to allow you to handle just such situations.


Hope that helps,

Mark S. Waterbury

Midrange Fans,

I've been noticing an occasional problem with batch FTPs where I work. If
any errors are encountered, the client seems to ignore them and continue to
process the reset of the commands in the INPUT file member, then exits
gracefully. So even if a batch FTP fails, the batch job itself ends
successfully. Is there any way to set the FTP command to stop with an
escape message if it encounters an error?
