Instead of doing a manual FTP each time it's required, here is a scheduled agent that runs everyday and FTPs a text file to a Notes server at another location that has Unix as the O.S. I have used a batch file which is created in Notes and which actually accesses the destination server & exports the text file there. The batch file and the text file are assumed to reside in the same directory.
