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 (/).
