I am trying to connect an FTP a file on Windows to iSeries. I make the FTP connection to the iSeries machine but the file does not transfer with the correct CCSID. The destination is a defined file/member with CCSID 13488 (graphic) field. I have mixed Japanese and English characters in the file. It is on the Windows machine as UTF-8.
Try to define the destination file tagged with CCSID of 1200 and send the file binary to the AS/400, this may solve it. If not, the safest approach I saw is putting it in BIN mode to the IFS.
quote type c 1200
put somefile ifsfile
Then to CPYFRM STMF from IFSFILE to the target.
