#5623 closed Bug report (worksforme)

File transfer from MVS USS not working

Reported by: GregC Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: MVS USS download Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Other
Operating system version: MVS z/OS 1.12


My client is Windows XP, the host system is IBM z/OS MVS. The files are located in USS. I can get OK to the '/u/gregcz' directory and see the USS files OK.
An attempt to transfer the files results in a

Command: RETR '/u/gregcz(wcode-body)'

which causes:

Response: 550 Command RETR fails: /u/gregcz(wcode-body) does not exist.

I believe the proper command should be:

RETR '/u/gregcz/wcode-body' instead.

Interestingly, when I attempt to manually enter such command, I get:

Error: Connection timed out

Manual download fails with "Remote path could not be parsed".

I can successfully use FTP to GET the files manually, so it can be done :-)
