compress and ftp from AIX to Windows

Hi all,
I am required to automate a ftp process for a file around 2 GB on a daily basis from AIX to Windows.Is there a utility or a software that could compress the file on AIX and can be uncompressed on Windows.

Source : AIX 5.3
Target : Windows 2003 server

Thanks all.

Use the zip algorithm for compressing files. This is pretty standard on Windows, WinZip for example. The AIX version can be found at:

IBM AIX Toolbox Download Page - Alphabetical Listing

look for:

- zip
- unzip

Otherwise, any compression algorithm will do as long as on windows a tool is installed to handle that specific one. Windows can also be made to handle .tar.gz archives for example.

You can use gzip and then copy over the file and gunzip it. Find here documentation about executable for windows.

The gzip home page

Try this one.
