Hi, Nick
Please post your script and output log.
You may need to specify a domain when logging into the PC.

Hi Nick,

Ave you checked the acces rights of the Login user on your PC?

Hi Nick,

I've had similar problems so often that I gave up. I now always FTP from the PC to the AS/400 (rather than the other way around).

It works beautifully every time.
