Hi Superk and all,

I have a small question. Reading this thread interested me in the idea of using FTP with REXX. I tried a small example but the problem is that I am not able to get information(file) from workstation to mainframe through my rexx as I am not able to provide a server name for the same.

Can you guys please provide me with some information or tips on how to do that if that is possible at all.

Thanks a lot
Ramesh.

Hello,

When you have a new question, it is best to start a new topic for your question rather than replying to an existing topic.

Hello,

If you post what you have so far, someone here may be able to offer suggestions.

Post your code as well as any diagnostic information provided by the system. Trace output is usually helpful.

I'm not sure I really want to start a discussion on this topic, since it's really a Networking/Windows (presumably) issue outside the scope of these forums. Anyway, you should be able to get the compute name or TCP/IP address from the active FTP server daemon you are connecting to. You can also get the computer name from either a "My Computer" icon or by looking at the System settings in the Control Panel.

Hello,

Are you trying to FTP from the mainframe to your desktop?

If so, your desktop must be running an FTP server daemon (rather than just an FTP client). Most organizations do not run FTP servers on desktops. I'd suggest you talk with your network admin people.

You might also try the mainframe FTP in batch rather than rexx and once it is working, follow the same process in rexx.
