EZA1736I LCD FTP
EZA2081I Local directory name set to partitioned data set PEP1001.FTP
EZA1460I Command:
EZA1736I CD C:\MEPS
EZA1701I >>> CWD C:\MEPS
501 A qualifier in "C:\MEPS" contains an invalid character
EZA1460I Command:
EZA1736I PUT //DD:SYSUT1
EZA1685W Invalid local file identifier
EZA1460I Command:
EZA1736I QUIT

I'm not an expert, but from what a quick Google search found, the >cd command only supports a change to a directory name, not to a drive. You should investigate the FTP protocol standards further, but my gut instinct is that a change to another drive is probably prohibited.

I think you have to write like this

CD /MAPS


Genarally we are transfering from PC to mainframe dataset
CD /path
PWD
LOCSITE LRECL= XXX , BLKSIZE=XXXX PRIMARY=XX SECONDARY=XX
GET filename.txt (from the path folder)
QUIT

Hi Shailesh

If u want it on ur machine then i can suggest ftp through MS-DOS.

1. Go to run.
2. Type cmd. enter
3. DOS Prompt opens up.
4. Type \cd.enter
5. It will ask for RACFID.
6. TYPE ID AND ENTER. It will ask for password.
7. Then type this. GET 'FILENAME' Receiving.file.name
8. Press enter.

If u face any difficulty then mail me .

all the best.

Regards
Imran

Hi guys..

Here is my simple FTP JCL..
My problem is, the file not transfered to my PC directory, it transfered to dataset in user.ftp..
How can make the file ftp to my PC directory??
Code:

//FTPJOB JOB 090000,CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X,NOTIFY=&SYSUID,             
//         REGION=3072K                                             
//*                                                                 
//*                                                                 
//FTP      EXEC PGM=FTP                                             
//OUTPUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=USER.FTP(FTPGET1),DISP=SHR                     
//SYSIN    DD *                                                     
// DD DSN=USER.FTP(INFO),DISP=SHR        *MY USER ID AND PASSWORD
// DD *                                                             
LCD FTP                                                             
CD \MAP             *My PC directory                                               
PUT //DD:SYSUT1 'MAP\TEST.TXT'                                     
QUIT

Your job worked OK at my end with a couple of minor tweaks:
Code:

//*                                                                 
//FTP      EXEC PGM=FTP                                             
//OUTPUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=USER.FTP(FTPGET1),DISP=SHR                     
//SYSIN    DD *                                                     
// DD DSN=USER.FTP(INFO),DISP=SHR        *MY USER ID AND PASSWORD
// DD *                                                             
LCD FTP <= Not Really Necessary                                                     
CD \MAP                                                             
PUT //DD:SYSUT1 TEST.TXT
QUIT

which FTP'd the contents of 'USER.FTP(FTPGET1)' to \MAP\TEST.TXT.

Hi That file /map/testfile.txt should not be from your normal pc. if you are using IBMFTP utility thorough JCL for converting notepad.txt to DATASET or vicevers then
There should be link between mainframe and the server on which the file is residing. otherwise if you want to convert txt file from your pc to mainframe dataset then use OPTION 6(COMMAND) in ISPF menu.

Any reason you're responding to a post almost 4 years old instead of starting your own thread?

You need to contact the person responsible for the server you are wanting to put your data on and have them give you access to write files. It may be that your id was set up to only write to a certain directory already, in which case you need a CD command in your FTP commands. In either case, you must contact someone at your site about this -- we cannot change write permissions on the server for you.

I thought this is the rule. If I start a new thread, the moderator will say search the threads. Since I think this thread was not complete I thought of using it.

BTW, I found the solution. In MS FTP services running in my PC, the Write access was unchecked. Now I am able to do the FTP from Mainframe to PC.

Thanks for your help.
