Using Dataset Listing on the z/OS
sftp2 file transfer client included with SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS does not natively support dataset listing functionality for local datasets. Dataset listing functionality is implemented only in the server module.
Dataset listing functionality can be enabled on the
sftp2 client by opening a localhost connection to the local file transfer server using the
lopen command. After the localhost connection is established, local SFTP commands, for example,
lls for listing local datasets and
lcd for changing the local DSN prefix, can be used in the same way as described in Sections Dataset Lists and Dataset Hierarchy.
mainframe_host> sftp2 userid@unix_host
sftpgt; lopen localhost
sftpgt; lcd /__USERID.
sftpgt; sput MY.DATASET /tmp/unix_file
