FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a client-server application that uses the TCP/IP Network Protocol. As such, there must be both an active Client and an active Server. If you want to initiate an FTP session from your mainframe, then that is the Client. There must be an active FTP Server for it to connect to.
In order for this process to work, you need the following:
1. The proper access rights to execute the FTP program on the mainframe.
2. A static TCP/IP address or Domain Name to connect to.
3. The ability to properly negotiate any network connections and firewalls that may exist between the two systems.
4. An active FTP Server running on the desktop, with all appropriate access rights as needed.
