Earlier we used to pull the files from a website to mainframe using FTP, but now all the websites are migrated to microsoft share point. Could some one help me in establishing a connectivity between mainframe and share point to pull the file from share point to mainframe?

You need to contact Microsoft to find out if Sharepoint can even access z/OS systems. The vendor will know MUCH more about the capabilities of the software than anyone on this forum.

You may need to consider alternatives -- such as using FTP to transfer data to a server, then accessing that server via Sharepoint.

I will check my notes for specifics when I get into the office in a few hours; IIRC the current version of SharePoint does not have this capability, but it is scheduled for a future release.

Hello,

The transfer from mainframe to Sharepoint can be done, we have that setup implemented and running fine.
You can add content — such as e-mail discussions, documents, pictures, and calendar items — to a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site by sending the content in e-mail to your site. If your list or library is set up to receive e-mail, this may be a more convenient way to work.
Use [URL] BBCode for Links

However for the DOWNLOAD,
I think sharepoint download requires cookie authentication, If you have mainframe SAS you can try allocating the sharepoint link to FILENAME statement, then pass the USERID and PASSWORD and try accessing the sharepoint server. The syntax for the statements could be found here
Use [URL] BBCode for Links
I Have'nt tried download.

Code:
Example 2: Specifying a User ID and a Password
This example accesses document file1.html at site Use [URL] BBCode for External Links using the SSL protocol and requires a user ID and password:

filename foo url 'https://www.b.com/file1.html'
         user='jones' prompt;


Example 3: Reading the First 15 Records from a URL File
This example reads the first 15 records from a URL file and writes them to the SAS log with a PUT statement:

filename foo url
    'http://support.sas.com/techsup/service_intro.html';
       
data _null_;
   infile foo length=len;
   input record $varying200. len;
   put record $varying200. len;
   if _n_=15 then stop;
run;



Hope it helps.
