Re: Copy Files from FTP Server to SAS Server

If you need to import data into SAS from the FTP server, look at FILENAME FTP or FILENAME SFTP (assuming that the insecure FTP protocol is no longer used, as should be).

For transfer of any files "as is", look at proper external tools like PuTTY or WinSCP.
