Preventing truncating trailing spaces

Is there a clean way to prevent a file FTP'd from an AS/400 system from truncating trailing spaces? I know the...

quote site trim 0 works from DOS, but I want to FTP directly from the AS/400 to the receiving system. The sent file always truncates the trailing spaces. Any ideas?


From the AS/400, in FTP use the command:
LOCSITE TRIM 0
This will set the trim off on the AS/400 FTP.
To turn it back on, use:
LOCSITE TRIM 1
To see what the current setting of TRIM is, use:
LOCSITE TRIM
