SSH.COM is one of the most trusted brands in cyber security. We help enterprises and agencies solve the security challenges of digital transformation with innovative access management solutions.
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.
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 interface for interactive file transfers 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
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/___&SYSUID..SSZ.SAMPLIB/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 or spaces. Both long parameters and abbreviations can be
used. The plain
site command outputs the list of entered parameters.
sftp> site LRECL=80 sftp> site RECFM=FB,VOLUMES=TEST sftp> site X=TEXT,C=ISO8859-1,D=IBM-1047 sftp> site Remote site parameters: O=FB,R=80,VOLUMES=TEST,X=TEXT,C=ISO8859-1,D=IBM-1047
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/___&SYSUID..SSZ.SAMPLIB/JCL1
