Support AS/400 OS/400 iSeries i5/OS "IBM i" platforms

Please provide support for IBM i. The FTP server operates in two naming formats (NA 0 = Library file system, NA 1 = Directory (Unix) file system). If the FTP server default is set NA 0 then Filezilla does not connect because the FTP server does not understand the CD syntax.

In the NA 0 format you enter "CD libraryName" or "get libraryName\fileName.memberName".

In NA 1 mode you enter "CD \QSYS.LIB\libraryName.LIB" or "get \QSYS.LIB\libraryName.lib\fileName.file\memberName.mbr". Understandably most people set the server to NA 0 because nobody feels like doing all that typing in NA 1 mode.

The easy solution is to provide the Site Manager with an option to define commands to be issued immediately after logon and before FileZilla issues any commands. You can then configure the host entry with the following command(s) which will place the server in the correct mode:

site NA 1
cd \qsys.lib\mylib.lib
