Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition
    v7.0.4 and v7.5 who are using a Protocol Bridge agent
    connected to a FTPS server.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When the WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Protocol Bridge
    agent was connected to a FTPS server, the following protocol
    bridge agent properties were not honored:
    - listFormat
    - passiveMode
    
    For the listFormat property this meant that only FTPS servers
    that return UNIX-like formatting for file listing could be used,
    as the default for listFormat is UNIX, but a FTPS server that
    returned WINDOWS file listing formatting could not used.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR resolved the issue by ensuring that the listFormat and
    passiveMode properties are honored for a FTPS server connection.
