I created a temp dataset but when I FTP the XMIT file to it (Blue Zone file transfer), it changes the blksize to 6160 instead of 3120. I just used drag and drop after connecting.

How do you either change the blksize or FTP with the correct blksize?

Does it matter, can't you receive it? I use a dataset with blksize of 27920, and RECEIVE is ok with that.

Like Willy said, it should work with either blksize.

But I recall that you can specify the blksize before issuing the PUT.

1. start the FTP
2. SITE BLKSIZE=3120
3. PUT my.file 'myuser.my.file'


update: Sorry, I just realized that 'Blue Zone file transfer' is not the TCPIP FTP that I was thinking about. The SITE command probably does not apply.
