The Answer is :

  Please contact a Microsoft Wizard, as this question appears specific
  to the FTP client found on the Microsoft platform.
  Using the OpenVMS TCP/IP FTP client and the OpenVMS TCP/IP FTP Server,
  this activity is clearly directly possible, indicating both the OpenVMS
  FTP client and the OpenVMS FTP server provide the required support, and
  tending to point to the file requested by the FTP client on the Microsoft
  From OpenVMS to OpenVMS:
FTP> get x.x;23
200 TYPE set to IMAGE.
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening data connection for ddcu:[dir]X.X;23 (w.x.y.z)
226 Transfer complete.
