to begin with, you must to know that FTP for transfert require two processes one ftp server and one ftp agent. the transferts evolve between server and agent in tow-way, but the connection is always initiate from agent to server or between two servers. Consequently you must check if the FTP server has started in your shop and if you has got ftp agent on your desktop, afterwards get the ip address or url from your mainframe. Then process as follow.
On your DOS command screen from your PC.
ftp> open IPADDR or mainframe URL
Connected to mainframe URL
