FTPAPI is not a server program.   It's an FTP client.   You do not need

This mailing list is for the purpose of discussing the FTPAPI and HTTPAPI
open-source projects.   It's not intended as a mailing list for general
sockets discussions.

I'd be happy to discuss socket programming in RPG with you if you
subscribe to the RPG400-L mailing list.  You can sign-up here:

I wrote a tutorial on sockets programming which has lots of examples.
You can find it here:

But, please don't discuss socket programming here.  This list is for
FTPAPI and HTTPAPI related discussions.

Thank you!
