I have been informed that ETS (mainframe adminstrators) hss dictated that all
ftp processes flowing into and out from the state's mainframe shall be secured as of a certain date in the future. Non-secured FTP will be denied (using port 23) at a certain date.
Does anyone know of a secure ftp client utility that supports the FTP "quote site filetype=jes"
command string? I need to be able to use secure ftp client to submit file to JES reader on mainframe (IBM mainframe, not sure of OS, but may be zOS; I don't know much about mainframes).
My application runs on a unix machine (SolarisOS 5.9) and executes the unix FTP
command, via dynamically built script, to send file to the mainframe to be executed from JES reader. The unix SFTP command is available, but I am pretty sure it does not provides JES feature.
Here is an example of what I generate and send to the mainframe:
open <domain name of mainframe>
user USERID PASSWORD
quote site filetype=jes
put /apps/.../Data/JCLJOB JCLJOB
