ftp from ABAP on OS/400

Hi Stan,

I didn't do this myself, but at least the executable SAPFTP *PGM is part of
the kernel and it should become called the same way. SO, I would just give
it a chance. If you code this in ABAP, I'm pretty sure, that this will run
in DIA WPs on the server (iSeries) and not on your client. You might want to
search the consolut group archive for the words:
ftp, sapftp, abap
(There was a discussion recently and I think some demo-abap as well)

Subject: ftp from ABAP on OS/400

I'm starting to research methods to transfer data via ftp directly from an
ABAP program on the AS/400. Our requirements include being able to ftp from
either a dialog session or in background. The documentation I've found on
SAPFTP indicate that it is only available on NT or UNIX. When I run the
SAPFTP version program (RSFTP001) it displays a component of the SAPGUI
(SAPFTP.EXE) which leads me to believe that SAPFTP cannot be run from
background on OS/400. I'm headed down the path of building a function
module to run ftp via an OS/400 system command. I'll probably write my ftp
function in CL and RPG and then call it from ABAP. I am curious about the
methods others are using run ftp with ABAP on the AS/400.
