The iSeries FTP server indeed uses the extension as the member name. There are two things that can be done regarding this issue:
1. You may want to put the file in the IFS -- it will keep the PC name.
2. You can specify an exact required member name, for example:
Put autoexec.bat myfile.mymbr.
Note: If the above is not good enough, you may invoke copy file after the "put", such as:
put autoexec.bat xx
quote rcmd cpyf fromfile(xx) tofile(myfile.ext)
