|PC to iSeries File Transfer Methods|
iSeries Navigator can be used as an efficient way to copy a save file from your PC to your iSeries.
This example details how to copy a save file from your PC to library QGPL.
The TCP/IP utility FTP (File Transfer Protocol) can be used to send iSeries 400 save files to and from PC workstations. This procedure assumes that TCP/IP and FTP support is active on the iSeries 400 and the PC workstation can access the iSeries 400 via TCP/IP.
Note: this example will transfer an existing release save file called SGI251D in a directory called DOWNLOAD on the PC workstation to an iSeries 400 save file called SGI251D in library QGPL on the iSeries 400. The names are only an example. Replace the name of the save file, etc..with the name of the file you're downloading.
Step 1 - Create Save File SGI251D in library QGPL
Step 2 - Change to Directory DOWNLOAD and Start FTP Session
(where nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is the IP of your iSeries)
Step 3 - Change to library QGPL and Set Transfer Mode to Binary
Step 4 - Transfer File and Terminate Session
When complete, the iSeries 400 file SGI251D will reside in library QGPL on the iSeries 400. A sample session is listed below.
==> CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/SGI251D) C:\> cd \download
