Chapter 9 Using Off-Platform Clients to Access z/OS Hosts Running Tectia Server for IBM z/OS

This chapter contains information on using Secure Shell clients other than Tectia client tools for z/OS to connect to Tectia Server for IBM z/OS:

  • Public-key authentication from other hosts to Tectia Server for IBM z/OS

  • Handling MVS data sets and HFS file system access from other hosts to Tectia Server for IBM z/OS

  • File transfer staging from other hosts to Tectia Server for IBM z/OS

  • Listing data sets with other SFTP clients

  • File transfer advice strings and file transfer profiles

  • Examples on file transfer using Windows and Unix clients


To access a z/OS host that runs Tectia Server using OpenSSH SCP you must either have OpenSSH server running on the same z/OS host with Tectia Server, or OpenSSH SCP must exist in /bin/scp on the z/OS host.


The default OpenSSH configuration on z/OS does not produce SMF records. SMF recording must be configured separately for OpenSSH if the OpenSSH SCP events are intended to be captured.
