If z/OS server is set to default to HFS (Unix) the client is unable to switch to normal MVS file system. It appears that there is a mistake with the FileZilla directory information. If a user is in HFS the CWD prefixes with a "/". To go to native MVS file system the client should drop the "/" prefix. Here's some info from the log;
Command: CWD /'tsospw3.'
Response: 550 CWD cmd failed : EDC5129I No such file or directory. (errno2=0x05190050)
What I entered in the "Remote site:" box was;
If I "Enter custom command" here's the log;
Command: cwd 'tsospw3.'
Response: 250 "TSOSPW3." is the working directory name prefix.
However, even though I can do the custom command the GUI interface stuff still insists on using the "/" prefix. It seems that if a user enters something in the "Remote site:" box that is a single quoted (') string the Filezilla client should NOT attempt to prefix the string with the front slash (/).
After updating to RC2 of FileZilla 3 Client it will no longer connect when using SSH authentication. Connecting with the same key from the same computer with FileZilla 2 works OK, as did the previous release of FileZilla 3
Here is the connection log:

Starting filezilla.exe either directly or with shortcut generates this error message:

For this session the default settings will be used. Any changes to the settings will not be saved.
As a result, the settings are dropped, and any settings entered cannot be saved. This bug appeared suddenly, without any cause that I can identify. It could not be corrected by uninstalling and re-installing, and it could not be corrected by downloading a new setup file and re-installing that. I will answer any questions that would help de-bug this. Thanks for helping.
