Situation

How do I set my FTP location?

Can exit point QIBM_QTMF_SVR_LOGON, format TCPL0200 be used to define a specific directory for an FTP user?

How do you set a user's initial directory path?

Resolution

The actual setting of someone being able to login and be in a specific directory, is an IBM function based on a combination of the FTP Attributes and the attributes of the individual user profile.

On a command line, type:

1)       WRKUSRPRF and F4 Prompt it.

2)       Set the following:

a.        CURRENT DIR   to the Library  you want to start in.

b.       HOMEDIR  to the IFS folder you want to start in.

 

In order to be able to use the HOMEDIR:

1)       CHGFTPA AUTOSTART(*YES) NAMEFMT(*PATH) CURDIR(*HOMEDIR)

2)       ENDTCPSVR *FTP

3)       STRTCPSVR *FTP

Additional Information

Formerly known as NETIQKB70889

You should also secure the exit point over QIBM_QTMF_SVR_LOGON TCPL0200 *YES.  And only allow those users you wish to be able to ftp in through the use of secured entries.  More information on TCPL0200 can be found in the following KB:

You will need to remove the exit program from format TCPL0100 before you are able to add it to TCPL0200.
