how to check if a file ftpd to mainframe was actually ftpd

Hi All,

I am ftping a file from unix to mainframe. Now the problem arises that i want to check if the file was ftpd or not. Is there any way i could do this?

What is the feedback from ftp? Are you able to infer from it?

You can use "hash key" command before doing ftp. While ftping, this will enable printing of # for every KB (or 100 KB) of data transferred. This will also keep the ftp session alive.

Another easy way is, if you have access to the mainframe system just login and check for the file :-)

do we just put a # on the ftp prompt before ftp?

No. The command is as below.

ftp> hash key
