ftp map to local drive ....

Hi, I was asked by our Lotus Notes admin if there is any kind of tool which will allow to map ftp connection as a local drive. They are so dumb, that they will try to find so obscure solution, because Lotus Notes can't simply read ftp protocol directly, nor it can write data in byte mode (only two bytes at once I was told, but I can't believe it), so .pdf attachement which will come thru RFC from our SAP system, can't be stored directly to harddrive. So the solution no 1 is to map AIX fpt drive to local drive or b) to find any kind of ODBC driver, which can accept binary data and simply write it to disc under some name :-) I told them to use small Rebol server for TCP communication or just plain and simply do the thingy directly in Rebol, but it was refused. So at the end, if they don't find any tool, they will create small Delphi app (because it can be trusted :-) and run the executable, so basically - they will achieve cgi mode functionality. Eh, is it worth a comment? :-) -pekr-

You can read and write to lotus notes databases via ODBC using REBOL/Command. You need to get the ODBC layer installed on the notes server first. Would that help?

Eh, sorry, maybe I was just confusing. The case is, that our LN admin wants to use LN to send email messages. It will get data from SAP thru RFC. The problem is, that SAP generates e.g. .PDF document. He needs to compose email message in LN, using LN functionality and structures. So he gets some string stream from RFC call, and needs to turn it into file. He can't write it using LN binary write mode, as it allows only two-byte writes (I don't understand, what does it mean though :-). So he wants to find some way to turn above mentioned string stream into file some way. LN knows how to talk to ODBC, so he asked me, if there is any kind of ODBC driver available, which could be send "INSERT table my-string-stream" and it would just save it to file. Well, of course I would like to turn the whole solution to Rebol, but - our organisation has some 2K licenses of LN, and I don't have enough influence to push Rebol forward in our company ... -pekr-
