I’m having trouble changing directorys. I’ve search Google and the like for answers, but all I see is Questions unanswered. Since this is mainframe based, I can’t use FTP clients like Cute or other Windows based FTP clients. Of course I could work around it, but for the job to be automated, it has to work this way.
How does an OS/390 or DOS based FTP clients change directorys on windows based servers that are long file named? Of course I could shorten up the directory names or put them together, but let’s just say I can’t.
Example. MVS FTP client logs into Windows FTP Server:
Assume my target directory on the server is: /123/abc/Deal File
cd /123/abc/Deal File >>>This doesn’t work.
cd /123/abc/DealFi~1 >>>This doesn’t work either.
cd /123/abc/dealfile >>>Nope.
cd /123/abc/DealFile >>>Uh huh.
Are FTP command interpreters incapable of resolving long directory or file names?
Sorry if this doesn’t belong here, but it’s driving me crazy.
