Yes, that is exactly right. The mainframe becomes the FTP client and the Unix system becomes the FTP server.

FTP is FTP. It's all the same. If you've already used it in Windows and Unix, then you already know how. Just remember that you are on an EBCDIC machine and that you are transferring data to an ASCII (typically BINARY) machine.

First, you can start by reviewing the help information for FTP by typing TSO HELP FTP in your TSO session.

Next, you might want to review the sections on FTP (Chapters 3, 4 and 5) from the IP User's Guide and Command:

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/F1A1B910/CCONTENTS

This page shows how to use FTP in batch:
