Transferring files from IFS to SFTP server

  • 1.  Transferring files from IFS to SFTP server

    Posted Fri March 18, 2022 04:13 PM

    I can't seem to find anything on this, and I thought it a pretty basic issue, so I feel pretty stupid. I am trying to send a text file from the IBMi IFS to our parent companies SFTP server. I have set up Expect to use scripting, but when I send the file to the server, it gets there with everything changed to unreadable characters.

    I thought it was the CCSID of the stream file that I create on the IFS. So I changed that to CCSID 367...still nothing, I changed the SFTP session to ASCII, and that also did nothing. I'm at a there a simple trick for sending a file from the IFS to a server and having it still readable?

    Have you tried alternating the Transfer type using the 'binary' or 'ascii' command within the script?

    When transferring files with FTP: ASCII and BINARY. ASCII files are plain text files. They can have extensions like .txt or have no extension at all. BINARY files are programs or other non-text files saved in the file format of the application that created them or archived or compressed file formats.
