Thank you!! That worked on an ftp from UNIX to UNIX. There's an issue with the AS/400 I need to resolve.

Please explain what the <<cmd ... cmd does.

Thanks,

Pietro.

The << cmd tells it to take all input from the following until it reaches cmd (usually EOF is used {End Of File} but it does not matter what it is (well...I guess commands would throw it for a loop).

Try this link on your AS400 problem - don't know for sure if it will help or not. http://www.iseriesnetwork.com/Resour...AS400Q0178.htm

Thank you very much for your help. THe AS/400 issue I have is I know nothing of directory structures... I have a test.zip file I want to ftp from UNIX. The file gets messed up, because, I imagine, the dot is some kind of a separator like on a mainframe.

Pietro.
