FTP dataset member with Arabic letters

Postby Mahmoud Anwer » Sat May 29, 2021 6:37 pm

I was trying to move a data set member that have Arabic letters from the Mainframe to my PC via FTP (FileZilla), but the member was unreadable.
Any suggestions to overcome this case.
Thanks in advance.

meditate on

https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/overv ... on-zos-ftp

and on how to specify

SITE ENCODING=MBCS MBDATACONN=(file_system_codeset, network_codeset)
LOCSITE ENCODING=MBCS MBDATACONN=(file_system_codeset, network_codeset)

for filezilla
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
