File Transfers Using Command-Line Applications

In most of these examples, SSH Tectia Client 5.2. is used. Examples can be used also with other clients if not mentioned otherwise. These examples apply to both Unix and Windows command-line clients.

Interactive File Transfers Using Command-Line Applications

SSH Tectia Client on Windows and Unix contain two file transfer applications.

  • scpg3 is a secure replacement for remote copy and provides easy secure interactive and non-interactive file transfers.
  • sftpg3 is a secure replacement for FTP and provides a user inteface for interactive and a batch mode for unattended file transfers.

The file transfer formats are the same as described earlier.

Example 1: scpg3 file transfer from Unix file to MVS partitioned dataset member using default file transfer profile.

$scpg3 textfile.txt user1@zos:/__USER1.TEST2.PDS/MEMBER1

Example 2: scpg3 file transfer from MVS sequential dataset to Windows file using a Windows profile.

C:\> scpg3 user1@zos:/ftadv:P=WIN/___USER1.TEST2.PS.FILE c:\temp\my_file.txt

Example 3: scpg3 file transfer of a partitioned dataset with members to Unix directory and files using the default profile.

$scpg3 -r user1@zos:/_TEST2.PDS /tmp/pds/

Example 4: File transfers between Unix and z/OS using sftpg3 (the sput and sget commands are available on SSH Tectia Client 5.2 and later).

$sftpg3 user1@zos
user1@zos's password: 
sftp> sget /_TEST2.PDS/MEMBER1 /tmp/member1
sftp> sget /FTADV:X=BIN/__TEST.PS.FILE1
sftp> sput /tmp/local_file.txt /FTADV:P=FB80/___USER1.JCLLIB/JCL1

Example 5: Using the site command to define additional dataset parameters (available on SSH Tectia Client 5.2 and later).

Parameters can be entered either one by one or several parameters can be delimited by commas. Both real parameters and abbreviations can be used. The plain site command outputs the list of entered parameters.

sftp> site LRECL=80
sftp> site X=TEXT,C=ISO8859-1,D=IBM-1047
sftp> site
Remote site parameters:

Example 6: File transfers using Unix OpenSSH client.

$sftp user1@zos
Connecting to zos
user1@zos's password: 
sftp> get /_TEST2.PDS/MEMBER1 /tmp/member1
sftp> get /FTADV:X=BIN/__TEST.PS.FILE1
sftp> put /tmp/local_file.txt /FTADV:P=FB80/___USER1.JCLLIB/JCL1

Unattended File Transfers Using Command-Line Applications

scpg3 commands can be used as Scheduled Tasks on Windows, or as cron jobs on Unix. With sftpg3, batch mode can be used. The syntaxes for scpg3 and sftpg3 are the same as described before.
