I am using Powerbuilder 8.0. I need to copy a file from an AIX machine to my windows machine. To be more clear....the s/w should have the ability to automatically move the files from the AIX machine to the Windows machine.
I would be thankful to you if you help me in this.

End If

FileWrite(li_ftpFile, "open " + ls_server)
FileWrite(li_ftpFile, ls_username)
