Finding out IP address of server

Hi,

Please let me know how to find out the IP address of MAin frame server. This is required to FTP file from MAinframe to PC using cmd. Please let me know the options for FTP file from MF to desktop and vice versa. Thanks in advance.

if You have the business need to know
Your support will be glad to provide You the information
and the documentation about the practices and standards in use in Your organization

lurking around is frowned upon almost in every organization
cheers

There are a number of issues here:
1. when using FTP from a mainframe to another system, the mainframe is the CLIENT, not the SERVER
2. most sites prohibit transfers from a mainframe to a desktop PC
3. most desktop PC's do NOT run the required software to be a server in an FTP connection -- hence you CANNOT run FTP on a mainframe to a desktop PC
4. the options for mainframe FTP are well-documented in the Communications Server bookshelf in the User's Guide manual -- and you can use HELP as an FTP command -- so why are you asking us to read the manual for you? This is a HELP forum, not a READ-THE-MANUAL-FOR-YOU forum.
5. when the mainframe is a client, you don't have to know the IP address it has, you only have to know the IP address of the server to connect to
6. as was pointed out, the BEST way to find the mainframe IP address (assuming you still want to know) is to contact your site support group -- they can also help you set up the FTP to do whatever it is you need to do with FTP
