FTP and floppy disk

I have old alphaserver 1000.

I need to create floppy disk for eisa configuration (ECU). I have some files but I need the way

To copy them.


My idea is that I format floppy and trough ftp copy files on it.

I booting system with openvms 7.0 and using DCL commands. I cannot mount hard disk an because of that I need to start ECU.


When I try dir/ftp I get an error “A Phase 1 Integration compliant OpenVMS TCP/IP product has not been installed or properly configured on this system.”

Can somebody help and tell what I need to setup to use ftp and what are the commands?


Thank you
