The easiest approach is to put the file(s) to be transferred into a  
BACKUP save set. Transfer the save set via ftp (or any other method -  
kermit anyone?). Sure the BACKUP save set has lost it's attributes  
during the transfer, but it's trivial to fix. Even more so with V8.4  
which has a /repair switch to BACKUP for just this purpose.
