mainframe file directory omits tape (EBCDIC) files from display

Reported by: dkowal Owned by:
Priority: low Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: EBCDIC binary tape Cc: toconnell@…
Operating system type: Windows Operating system version: 5.00.2195 Service Pack 4

Description

FileZilla version is 3.1.6, build date 12/2/08

After logging in to a VM system and displaying a file directory, the detail list of files in the remote system's directory is incomplete.

It appears that the names of native files (EBCDIC) don't display. Names of ASCII text files do display.

No filters are in use (none are set up).

We know that this is a FileZilla problem, not a permissions or other issue, because we can view all of the files using a commercial product called WS_FTP which is similar to FileZilla. Our intent is to use FileZilla to perform binary downloads of data files from the mainframe to our network.

The FTP connection is accomplished through a Cisco VPN. ZoneAlarm firewall is running on our client Windows 2000 PC (ZoneAlarm is required by the host).

Two log files attached, dkowal_FZ_log.txt and dkowal_FZ_log2.txt. First is complete log with target directory 'PSA.', second is easier to see, more specific target 'PSA.C4420.'.

It appears to show that directory entries of tape files on the MVS system don't display in the remote site directory, and are therefore unavailable for ftp download. Example from log:
18:56:27 Listing: V09899 Tape AIMAST.GDG.G0095V00

  • resolution fixed deleted

I see that in client 3.7.3 the problem is still there : tape files (a.k.a. archived files) are not listed for the mainframe directory, only the files on the on-line disks.

  • priority changed from high to low

Changed to low priority, there are very few users using such legacy systems.
