Hello,

Which is used depends on the environment and the requirements.

They are completely different and do not provide the same service(s).

Most of the systems i support have all 3 for different "things" - often compatability with some external user/client/provider.

May I ask, what's the difference between "FTP" and "Netview FTP"?
It seems that Netview FTP is kind of enhanced version of FTP, Right?

Hello,

Several vendors have an "FTP Product". Each will tell you that theirs is "enhanced".

For the most part, one must use whatever is the product (server or client) currently in use.

netview FTP is not an enhanced version of FTP, they are not even close relatives!

netview FTP has been there and working before the TCP/IP and FTP wide spread
and used as transport protocol SNA

just for a hint
http://www.fldoe.org/eias/dataweb/database_9900/manual_9900/volume2/v2appo.pdf

You will have to read the proper netview manuals for further details

MQ is a messaging facility not a file transfer tool.

I was going to say the same thing. The FTP vs. NDM stuff has been addressed here before. Do a search for "NDM" and you should find one or more of those topics. Or, if you go to the Sterling Commerce web site, they should have white papers available for you to download with their assessment of the advantage of their product(s) over the other options.

Does NetView FTP and FTP needs to be installed seperately?

Now, my customer does not want to buy specail software for file transfer...

FTP is a component of TCP/IP and is available when the TCP/IP stack is activated. Netview is a separate package that can be purchased and installed.

If there is suitable software already installed, it would be used. If there is not, something will have to be selected and installed.

This topic has gone basically nowhere and will be locked if this continues. . .
