May I repharse your requirement as:
"I want to download a PS (QSAM dataset ) from Mainframes to local PC".
If yes then you can you can make use of option START/ 6 of ISPF
Here paste the DSN on command-line below the 'Enter TSO or Workstation commands below:'
Now from Transfer menu choose 'Recieve File From Host'.
One window will pop-up:
In Host File: give the DSN to download
In PC file :give PC-file name for that file,
Transfer Type: Text

If the requirement is to download mainframe data to a desktop, you will probably not use mainframe ftp to "put" the file. Most desktop systems do not run an ftp host and without it the ftp program from the mainframe would have nowhere to send the file.
You can get the file from the mianframe easily using the ftp client on the desktop.
