Question File transfer from unix to NT box?

Is there a method to transfer a file from UNIX (AIX) to an NT box
without the NT box having any special software running? I can ping the box via the network and I have a valid NT account to use.

Is FTP a viable solution ?

FTP is the 'usual suspect' and works fine. You can also use SSH in file transfer mode; however, SSH requires more initial setup than FTP (which should work very easily out-of-the-box).

Error connecting

I get the following error trying to connect to the Windows NT box
either via hostname or using the IP address on the ftp line:

ftp: connect: A remote host refused an attempted connect operation.

Try FTPing from the NT box to the UNIX box (versus the way you are trying, UNIX to NT). What happens?

That works fine, I even have Hummingbird software that has a Windows explorer FTP utilitiy. Either way the FTP works from when initiated from the NT. The catch is that I need to send (initiate) from the UNIX box. The NT box is sitting waiting for files to be dropped in a directory. ????????

Sounds like the NT box is not running an FTP server process. Can you check the network services running on the NT box and see if there is an FTP listening process?

Thanks.. I am now able to transfer files interactively with FTP.
Is there a way to build a dynamic file with the user Id, password (anonymous ftp user), and the put command and pass it to the FTP without user intervention??
I am using a shell to write the data to a file then using the 'ftp -v - <filename' but it stops at the password prompt. As soon as I hit enter it finishes the process successfully. Getting closer!!
