Environment Variables for Server and Client Applications
The environment variables
_BPX_BATCH_UMASK must be set as shown in
sshsetenv when running SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS programs (see below). The server startup procedures described in Section Running the Server set these variables automatically for the server.
The NAME=VALUE format (as in
SSHENV) is used when the client or server programs are run under MVS, and the Bourne shell format (as in
sshsetenv) is used when the programs are run from a USS command line.
The server will do codeset conversion on request when transferring files. The
iconv function is used for the conversion.
iconv() uses the following environment variables. Usually changing these variables is not necessary:
iconv_open(Y, X) which type of a conversion method to set up when there is a choice between "direct" conversion from X to Y and "indirect" X to UCS-2 to Y.
iconv_open() which z/OS dataset name prefix to use to find the UCS-2 tables if they cannot be found in the HFS.
