File Transfers Using Windows GUI

In these examples, SSH Tectia Client 5.2 is used. The same syntax applies to most of the Windows GUI SFTP applications.

MVS Dataset and HFS File System Hierarchies

GUI clients display MVS datasets as files and folders. Sequential and VSAM datasets are displayed as files and partitioned datasets as folders.

Partitioned dataset members can be viewed by double-clicking the PDS "folder".

If a default file transfer home directory is defined as MVS, Unix System Services can be accessed by typing / (or a Unix home directory like /home/user1) in the remote path.

Figure : Viewing USS home directory

If a default file transfer home directory is defined as USS, MVS datasets can be accessed by typing /__USERNAME. (for example /__USER1.) in the remote path.

Interactive File Transfers Using Windows GUI

Files and MVS datasets can be transferred with drag-and-drop either between local and remote views, or between Windows Explorer/Desktop and remote view.

These file transfers use the default file transfer profile if file transfer profiles are enabled.

Whole partitioned datasets can be transferred by transferring the PDS folders.

Specific profiles or file transfer parameters can be defined to remote path with the same format as described earlier. In the figure below, the advisor string "/FTADV:P=WIN/___USER1." is used to select a Windows file transfer profile.

Unattended File Transfers Using Windows GUI

The SSH Tectia Client GUI does not yet provide scheduled non-interactive file transfer capabilities, but the file transfer queue can be used for semi-automatic file transfers. Files, folders, and datasets can be dragged to the file transfer queue where user can select "Transfer all" with a right mouse click to initiate a batch file transfer.
