I need to transfer some 20G of text files each night to a Linuz server in a
remote location. The plan is to zip all the files up, use a Windows server
to access the Power server (on 7.3) via SSH, grab the zip file and then
SFTP to a remote location. That Linux remote location would then unzip the
files and make them ready for an ETL process into a Data warehouse.

Some of the non iSeries guys were asking if the zip file created by IBMi
would be compatible with standard zip files and I think they would be I
thought I would check here first.

Thanks for any feedback.
