Hi,

Can someone please let me know the SFTP replacement command for LOCSITE ASA in FTP ?
I am trying to SFTP a Mainframe VBA format file , from Mainframe to windows folder in .DOC format and looks like the "Print Page" characters are not being understood by SFTP. So all the 1's and 0's are getting printed on the .DOC document .

Thanks

SFTP is a data transfer program not a data manipulation program. It sees your 1s and 0s in column 1 as just pieces of data to be transferred so that is what it does. If you want those bytes to mean something then you have to provide the program to do that once the data has been transferred.

Thanks Nic. But FTP also trasmits data and is able to understand
The ASA "Print Page" numbers and the .doc document which is created
Is formatted accordingly. We should be having a similar locsite command
In SFTP as well similar to LOCSITE ASA command in FTP.

do You really think that the authors of a program really care about what You should have or not icon_evil.gif

what about reading the manual Yourself ???

to save some of Your precious time I googled and here is the link to the sftp command
www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSLTBW_2.3.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r3.foto100/fotz152.htm

anyway ftp and sftp belong to different components
ftp is part of the IBM communication server
sftp is part of OpenSSH

different programs, different components, different authors, different specifications, different commands icon_cool.gif

Thanks Nick once again for trying to help me.

For carriage return or line feed we use
linerule=crlf in lzopts parameter in SFTP. So when SFTP reads a
Record and encounters a carriage return or line feed, the remaining
Data is written in next line.

What i am talking about below is similar to above but this time its paging
Feed. So is there some command like linerule above, which willdo the
Paging as well when SFTP encounters paging characters ?

The name is Nic - no 'k'.
Enrico gave you a link to the manual - what does it say?

Check the record format of your dataset. If it is FBA then you may want to use recfm=fba in lzopts parameter in SFTP
