TCPIP FILE Transfer software that works

By creed ·
Hi all!
Can you help? My question is "Are there any software programs that work using TCPIP when downloading files from the Stratus Machine to a Novell Network and a PC using NT4.0 Operating system? We need to develop this mechanism and do not knowof any packages that work well. Currently, the Stratus mainframe people are using SSHELL, and while that works, it does not work with NT. The network is just a passthrough for the files to the PC from the Stratus machine, and the Operating system of NT does not like SSHELL at all.
We also will be downloading via TCPIP from the AS/400 to the Novell Network and a PC using the NT operating system.
Quite a quandry. Please help with any information.

I know nothing about Stratus, but if they run TCP/IP then FTP should do the trick. You could also try NFS. Of course you will need TCP/IP configured correctly on all systems to make it work.

Good Luck

I took a quick look at the Stratus website. Which OS are you running? If unix, you should be able to run a FTP server on the Stratus machine which will allow TCP/IP clients to download file from it. If you want to mount the Stratus hard drive into Explorer then an NFS implementation would be needed. Sorry I don't know of any third party software companies that have solutions for you. Good Luck!

When I was at Telerate in the early 90s we used PC-Connect for this. Sorry, I don't know who makes it.
