I have a binary file on a UNIX box that I need to ftp to a mainframe as RECFM=FB and LRECL=180. How do I format the ftp script?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

On z/OS, the FTP SITE and LOCSITE commands have a few extra options for ‘traditional’ z/OS files (as apart from z/OS UNIX files). They’re documented in the z/OS Communications Server IP User’s guide.

So from your remote UNIX machine, you could use the FTP command
SITE RECFM=FB LRECL=180.

If this doesn’t suit, another option is to pre-allocate the dataset on z/OS.

Hope this helps.
