I have written this small rexx to ftp from tso to windows.

Code:
/*REXX*/                                     
ddnftp = AA.bb.cc                   
filename = file.tobe.sent
server = nnn.nn.nn.nn
Queue "sendsite"                             
Queue "ascii"                               
Queue "cd temp"                             
Queue "put //dd:"ddnftp" "filename           
Queue "qui"                                 
x = Outtrap(x.)                             
"FTP "server" 21 (Exit=8"                   
retcode = rc                                 
x = Outtrap(Off)                             
Say RC                     


i am getting this error:

Does the id that this process ran under have FTP authority?

As I understand it, the 0B0C00FB reason code indicates that your user id is not authorized to use Unix System Services (which is required to use FTP). If your site uses RACF, you need to contact your site security group and have an OMVS segment added to your user id. If you don't use RACF, there are equivalent things to be done but I don't know what they would be -- so, again, contacting your site security group would be your best option.

I didn't spot this statement first time around. Be aware that it is not possible to FTP from the mainframe to a desktop machine. FTP requires specialized software to be running on the machine you are connecting to, and desktop machines do not run that specialized software (except in very rare circumstances). If you are connecting to a Windows SERVER, that will be fine -- but connecting to a Windows DESKTOP will fail. Period.

Also ...

ddnftp = AA.bb.cc

that is NOT a valid DDNAME.

Robert, I don't know about you, but when someone posts a topic concerning an FTP issue, I usually immediately presume that they've already validated that they have the proper authority, network access to the target server(s), and that the server(s) they want to connect to are already setup for proper FTP access.

Kevin, I usually assume the same -- but when someone says they're wanting to FTP to "Windows", too many times they think they can FTP to their desktop.

Let me state it this way. Proper due diligence is expected from the poster, especially if they've been a long-time member.

Hello,

And when someone is trying something "new" i'd suggest doing all of the steps manually first to make sure everything works as needed.

Then wrap the process with code to automate.

Sure makes diagnosing easier. . .

Actually, "specialized" is somewhat of an exaggeration, I use FileZilla Server, which is probably entry level software on an XP Pro box and that works without any problems. It is also pretty easy to set up: define a user with password, define a home directory, make sure your router/modem forwards port 21, and, optionally, get a pseudo-static IP address via one of the many free services that provide them, I use the free DynDNS client. That's it...

... and I use Cerberus FTP Server (we're Windows/XP Professional). Never an issue, works great.

Hello,

All well and good for home use or if your organization permits turning your desktop into a server. . .

Many organizations do not permit individuals to load software onto their "work" pc and they also do not permit running an "ftp server" on a desktop.

When people ask how to get data from the mainframe for personal use, i suggest they "pull" from the mainframe rather than "push" to the desktop.

Another "solution" that has become popular is to send data as an attachment to an e-mail.

Hi,

I am aware that this thread is little old.. but still wanted to share my view.

I use simple DOS based Batch(.bat) file written in Notepad to GET and PUT files from/to Mainframe and Windows.
