FTP & '£' characters

Postby klee » Tue Feb 22, 2011 6:59 pm


Haven't used FTP from mainframe much. Have noticed when I FTP in Ascii mode the '£' signs do not display correctly (on solaris I get \234 on windows I get a sort of 0e character ). Could anyone point me in the right direction on how to resolve this.

This may not be an FTP issue -- nonstandard characters, such as the currency symbol, do not always display correctly unless you use the correct code page. If you think it is an FTP issue, look at the translate table used at your site -- there is a default one used or the site support group may have created one for your site. Contact your site support group for help.
