The enclosed instructions will allow you to manually download a file from any AS/400 IFS directory or folder via FTP.

  1. Go to the DOS prompt and start FTP file transfer by typing: ftp 1.1.1.1 and pressing enter. (Replace 1.1.1.1 with the IP address for your iSeries)
  2. At the prompts, enter your iSeries user name and password.
  3. Once logged in, enter binary at the FTP command prompt. This will ensure that no data conversion is performed when downloading.
  4. Assuming the IFS file is called report.pdf and resides in the root directory of the IFS, run recv /report.pdf c:\report.pdf to download.
  5. Once complete, enter quit to exit FTP.
