hi all
i am trying to take copy of my code base in my local machine.
"mget PDS(*)"

i gave the ftp in command prompt followed by the hostname( i was able to connect to the host).

then i provided the username and password but i could not connect to the MF. the error it shows is

"530 PASS command failed
Login failed."

But i am pretty sure the authentication details are correct.

please help me in resolving this.

thanks
arun

HI arun

As far as i know we can transfer one memeber at a time. Go to start 6
which is command option and the click download icon. Mention ur PDS name with member name in () and give the destinantion file name with the extension.

U can transfer the file like this to host and from host with upload option

Arun,

Copy all the PDS memebers into one flat file (using c option inside the PDS). Then FTP the flat file.

Look up the XMIT format.
And google XMIT Manager for your PC.

Yes, a problem he'll have to address internally.

If it's any help, I get the same error if I attempt to FTP to a system that I don't have FTP authority for.

Hello,

This

says that you used a domain name or ip address that was running an ftp service. How did you determine to use that particular host? Does you site have multiple systems? As SuperK mentioned, you may have "connected" to one of your systems that your id doesn't have access to.

Once you have the login issue resolved, look and see if you have a win-based tcp/ip product on your desktop. If you run a 3270 emulator, you most likely have some kind of tcp/ip software on your pc. In many of the desktop tcp/ip products, there is an ftp function that is windows based rather than command line. Several of the ones i've used support downloading a pds into a local directory and each member becomes a file in the local directory - very handy icon_smile.gif

As was mentioned before, you could create a single sequential file of all of the members, but after they are downloaded, you would need to separate them (if you wanted each member separate).
