Using with IBM MVS Operating System

I was wondering if there was any way to connect to an
IBM MVS OS mainframe with Filezilla. In IPSwitch's
WS_FTP, you have the option to choose operating

The current version doesn't appear to work because it
auto-adds the forward slashes in the directory name.
The mainframe doesn't like that. Any information you
could provide would be helpful.

It would be so helpful if FileZilla would support IBM MVS

I too would like to be able to connect to the MVS environment
like WS-FTP does. MVS uses the period instead of the
slash separator to mimic the normal file directory structures
you see on other platforms.

Not supported in current version. BotG have tried to figure
it out, but haven't found enough information on that system
to implement it. Please post a link if you know where it's
properly explained.

Moving to feature request.
