You didn't mention the method you're using for the FTP process (from a CLP, interactive, etc.).
* It's easy to set the destination library to be different then QGPL'. For example, lcd mylib will direct the files to mylib.
* If the file names are short enough, the iSeries FTP client will behave the way you want (i.e. new file for every remote file), however, for longer then 10 character file names, this may be an issue.
* The easiest way to work around this naming restriction is to direct the FTP incoming files to the directory on the IFS. For example:
mget longnamesintheremote server*
