FTP client is our IBM i.

FTP server on their end is Windows.

What FTP *client* software are you using? The IBM FTP Client on IBM i?
Or (since this is the PCTECH list) the Microsoft command-prompt FTP

Or one of the other zillion FTP clients for windows? Or something else?

The only reason the FTP server software might matter is when the client
scripts don't support comments. When they don't support comments, then you
have to resort to using some "harmless" command that gets sent to the
server but is ignored (like rcmd with /* */ or NOOP).

But if you use a client software that supports comments, then it'll work
with any server.

to use a way that works no matter what the server side is. Antyone know?
