I am trying to create a WinSCP Session to connect to an MVS system running z/OS ftp server. I can connect, but the session fails with an error when it tries to obtain a directory listing. I can connect successfully with Filezilla; however, I need to use WinSCP since I want to use the .com Command Line version with saved sessions and script files to create unattended ftps. In both Filezilla and WinSCP session setups I use a Remote Directory. The log files are below: is there a setting that I am missing in WinSCP, or is MVS with the z/OS ftp server not supported? Thanks...

WinSCP does not support non-Unix-like systems with FTP. This issue is being tracked already.
