I want to FTP into IBM i (AS400) directly to "legacy file system".

Some sites talks about adding these lines to appropriate section.

  <Command>site namefmt 1</Command>
  <Command>site listfmt 1</Command>
  <Command>cwd /QSYS.LIB/USERLIB.LIB </Command>
  <Command>TYPE A</Command>

I found setup file in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla I know that this is correct file because when I deleted contents Filezilla lost setup menu.

Unfortunately this does not work for me. Filezilla seems to ignore the section entirely.


Check CHGFTPA command on IBMi. In Filezilla, put /QSYS.LIB/TEMP.LIB or something like that in the remote directory.

That works for me.

Think you're missing the QOUTE

This works for me...

            <Command>qoute site namefmt 1</Command>
            <Command>qoute site listfmt 1</Command>
            <Command>cwd /QSYS.LIB/MYLIB.LIB</Command>

Note that this goes into the sitemanager.xml file, not sure if that's the "setup file" you're talking about.

So you'd need to add an entry for your IBM i via the site manager utility within FileZilla, close FileZilla, and edit the entry in sitemanager.xml adding the commands above after the <port>21</port> line. Save and restart FileZilla and use the site manager utility to connect to your system.
