Hello,

Yes, it is possible. . . There are many ftp clients in existence - written in assembler, some flavor of C, and VB.

The question is not a mainframe issue at all, but rather the coder's knowledge of the ftp and visual basic.

You will probably find more info that could help you in a Windows developer's forum.

Hello,

To clarify a bit. . .

You would not connect to the "mainframe" from your code.

You would connect to an ftp service that happened to be running on a mainframe. Done correctly, the code would connect to ftp on a mainframe or a unix system or a win-based system.
