View Full Version : Auto File Transfer with HOD.
01-01-1995, 02:00 AM
I will soon be moving one of my clients private extranet site from "Webulator" to Host on-Demand (HOD). The latest version of HOD comes with file transfer facilities, but I can't find documentation on this aspect of the product anywhere. The goal here is to automatically upload data to the AS/400 from the client PC, from a specific directory, without client intervention. It would be appreciated if anyone had either a pointer to HOD documentation on how this can be accomplished, or could provide an FTP script that would accomplish the same thing. TIA, Dave

Thanks Bob, I checked it out. Th object here, is to do all processing from the host. We do not wish to install any software whatsoever at any of limited sites that will have access to the extranet. We went that route once before, and suffice it to say, it is far more trouble than it is worth. To be more precise, a ".TXT" file will reside in a specific directory on the client PC. The client executing an AS/400 session within HOD will be running a CLP that will do whatever to grab the file from the client, create a new member in a pre-existing database into which this file will be fed. The data will then be processed. This should all take place without any client intervention, except that the client kicked off the process in the first place. I figured that executing an FTP script should do it, but as yet, I'm not too familiar with HOD, except that I know that there is a file transfer facility available. Lacking documentation, and not being able to find it at the IBM website is rather frustrating. HOD has not been installed yet. We are waiting for V4R5, I'd like to be able to "hit the ground running" when HOD is delivered. Dave

David, I managed to get hold of some documentation and examples for HOD. Let me know where I should send it. Jeff Lee, email@example.com, AS/400 Toolbox for Java
