If you do not already have an FTP client, you will need to download WS_FTP. If you are unsure about other software you have, download this program and test it out first. You can get a copy of WS_FTP from the Software Downloads page. You will need your username and password to download the software.
For detailed, step-by-step directions on how to install and the WS_FTP program, please view the FTP to Your User Space Solution Guide from the Solution Guides section.
Start the FTP program, then click the New button on the right side. This will create a new FTP session. For illustrative purposes, we have named the session MAINFRAME but you may name it whatever you want. Fill in the hostname with clemson.clemson.edu. The Host Type is IBM MVS. Fill in the username with your own. Fill in your password in the next box.
Click OK to continue, and FTP will attempt to connect.
If the connection attempt is successful, mainframe space will be visible on the right side. To go to the proper directory, click on the ChgDir button on the right. Type in 'ACS.OMR.DATA' (including the single quotes) and press Enter. If you want to transfer files from mainframe space, click on the desired files on the right side, then click on the left arrow. Make sure that the ASCII file is checked.
To transfer OMR data, highlight the file you want to download, and then click the arrow button that points from right to left.
