Hi,

I have a text file (a normal text file having some records from database ) which I have to FTP to a remote mainframe printer. I dont have any idea whether there is any difference in mainframe printer and normal printer.
How can I FTP a file to remote printer using visual basic. Is there any extra consideration such as file extension, file format which i should take care when creating the file.
Thanks in advance.

Here is an example of how to use FTP in visual basic http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=278027&highlight=ftp
If the printer supports FTP I think it should accept normal text file(s) without any problems...

If the printer uses FTP in the same way as a UNIX printer driver, the filename is irrelevent. The text will be output as sent.
