Some of you must be using Macs to access z/OS data sets.

I'm looking for a good Mac OS FTP client that can handle PDS members -
including ASCII/EBCDIC translation.

Eventually I might need the ability to get zFS files but not yet.

Automation a bonus.

Any recommendations? I'll accept chargeable ones as well as free ones.

Thanks, Martin

I am told that FileZilla is mainframe-friendly. I don't have first hand
experience.

I will verify that FileZilla is mainframe-friendly, because we use it here at UFL.

I'm on Mac and just use command line ftp. Also have a python script using
ftplib for scripting. Works fine with PDS both ascii and ebcdic.

lftp. (LFTP)

it's free. open source from homebrew, macports or download. Scriptable and supports full TLS over ftp. Does USS and datasets. Will also do certificate based auth too. Nothing else even comes close. Learning curve is not terrible and it's well documented. Accept nothing less ;)

Yes, but how do you do EBCDIC conversion with lftp? I.e., how do I shoehorn in a:

ls /+mode=text;

command in my lftp script/command line?

Here is a list of some Mac FTP clients: http://macosxbits.com/2016/04/best-mac-ftp-client/

I generally use either FileZilla or the native Mac/Unix ftp command.
