when connected to a MVS FTP server file listing is not shown

#1 Post by MVSUser » 2004-03-31 06:41

when filezilla connects to a z/OS (aka MVS aka OS/390) Host it doesn't list files on MVS filesystem.
The z/OS has 2 filesystems (fs)
- the "normal" MVS fs where all files start with a ' e.g.
'USERID.BLA.TEXT' or 'HLQ.BLA.MORE.BLABLA'
- the UNIX fs where alle files start with a / e.g.
/home/userid/bla etc.
A ftp client can switch between the two fs via cd command. but for each fs the directory listing looks quite different. When I switch on the debug switch for filezilla I get an empty directory listing

When I 'm using a classical text mode ftp client get the listing and when issueing the SITE command I can distinguis between the 2 fs:

ftp> quote syst
215 MVS is the operating system of this server. FTP Server is running on z/OS.
ftp> cd /home/userid
250 HFS directory /home/userid is the current working directory
ftp> quote syst
215 UNIX is the operating system of this server. FTP Server is running on z/OS.

Can you please describe the directory listing format as detailed as possible?
Which fields are there, which values can they contain, how does a filename look and such things.
