Do I need to configure my local windows to FTP files from local windows to a UNIX AIX server?

Hi Friends,


I have this script for ftping files from AIX server to local windows xp.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
HOST='localsystem.net'
USER='myid_onlocal'
PASSWD='mypwd_onlocal'
FILE='file.txt'  ##This  is a file on server(AIX)

ftp -n $HOST <<END_SCRIPT
quote USER $USER
quote PASS $PASSWD
put $FILE
quit
END_SCRIPT

.........................................................................................
The above script is run on AIX server to FTP files from AIX server to local system with windows xp.
My AIX server doesnot recognise the HOST.
If I ping the IP address(52.234.13.33) corresponding to HOST, the AIX server get response from this IP.
But if I use FTP 52.234.13.33 from AIX server, I get error.
Error is:
Code:
ftp: connect: A remote host did not respond within the timeout period.


I would like to know what am I missing in the script.
Why is AIX server is not able get response from the local system(windows xp) ?
OR Do I need to configure my local system with the help of
admin....to be able to ftp files from UNIX AIX server to it ?



Any help is this regards is appreciated ...

Thanks a lot friends..
raj.

It seems like the FTP server is not running on the XP system, can you FTP by command line instead of the script to test it?

XP does not have an FTP server configured by default, please post on an XP forum if you need assistance with the XP ftp server configuration.
