Tectia File Transfer Clients

Tectia client tools for z/OS contain two file transfer applications, scpg3 and sftpg3:

  • scpg3 is a secure replacement for remote copy (rcp) and provides easy secure non-interactive file transfers.

  • sftpg3 is a secure replacement for FTP and provides a user interface for interactive file transfers and a batch mode for unattended file transfers.

scpg3 and sftpg3 are executed in JCL by BPXBATCH.

Note that when running the client programs in JCL, the _BPX_SHAREAS environment variable must be set to no.
